    All you have is a report saying it is a possibility.

    Under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the Social Security Act was enacted in 1935. The act, which was amended in 1939, established a number of programs designed to provide aid to various segments of the population. Unemployment compensation and AFDC (originally Aid to Dependent Children) are two of the programs that still exist today.

    Exactly. But he was speaking pre civil rights versus post civil rights. He throws in welfare as the cause, but you point out that happened before. I never said he was smart or knowledgable.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    It's good enough for now. And quite likely.

    No, read the article. It's a comparison if then and now, ore and post. Context.

    Wrong.
    There is no other context than that which he provided.
    He was working alongside. They were happy.
    Which was prior to "Pre-entitlement, pre-welfare," as he saw it, which is his personal experience.

    You have nothing that says his personal experience is wrong. Nothing.

    Wrong.


    The author of the article (not Phil) frames it as "Phil On Growing Up in Pre-Civil-Rights-Era Louisiana"
