    You provided a blog that actually argued against the idea that FDR was successful in alleviating the problem.

    I suppose that is almost the same as a 99% agreement.

    REad the rest to show, that more then just "one paper" says FDR was the prime cause of misery during the GD.
    I was obviously speaking metaphorically, but the fact is that the majority of economists believe that the New Deal, over all, was a success. Not perfect, but certainly better than doing nothing. Hell, even Milton Friedman said that the New Deal’s Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was “the structural change most conducive to monetary stability since … the Civil War.” People also tend to forget that Keynes was a major critic of FDR's New Deal policies as he felt that it didn't do enough to stimulate private enterprise.

    Aw, gee, let me pull a liberal on you, Salon magazine? ROFLMAO. I hope I am around when you grow up and out of that brainwashed state of mind you are in.

    You seem to have a reading comprehension problem if that's what you got out of the cited text.

    I hope when you grow up you learn that ad hominem isn't argument.

    Anyone is popular while they are giving things away.
    That is why liberalism remains popular with many on this thread, they buy votes by keeping people dependent.

    No ad hominem there at all, just reality and experience speaking.

    Actually it was ad hominem by any definition of the term: attacking the source rather than the substance.

    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
