The Great Depression was a worldwide economic downturn starting in most places in 1929 and ending in the 1930s or early 1940s depending on the country. It was the largest economic depression in the 20th century, and is used in the 21st century as an example of how far the world's economy can fall.
Tonight on Circle A Radio, we listen to Oral Histories recorded in the 1930’s and 40’s, and we talk to historian Howard Zinn to help us understand the comparison between the present economic crisis, and the economic crisis of america’s past.
