Default Re: History Lesson - Then and Now

so 1937 was a sharp rise in unemployment while the overall trend was down?

facinating.

(digression)

I remember a little rascals episode where one of the kids found (or were given, I think, by their mom) a bunch of bonds or stocks that turned out to be valuable.
Alfalfa or one of the gang had used them to make a kite, and some dude was chasing after them to steal them

Growing up in the boom times of late 50's early 60s, I never understood many of the images / scenes depicted on the little rascals.

(end of digression)
