Dick Jones Communications

Connecting with the Great Depression

Saint Joseph's University

Political leaders, economic analysts and journalists are comparing the current financial meltdown to the Great Depression. "Worst Crisis Since the '30s, With No End Yet in Sight" was a recent baleful headline from The Wall Street Journal. But while many senior citizens who lived during that time have personal memories of the Depression, for most Americans, the events that occurred between 1929 and the early 40s seem long ago and far away, and they are difficult to imagine as a likely eventuality for the near future.

In the first three days of the country's economic meltdown that began Sept. 29, 81 percent of Americans surveyed in a national poll agreed or strongly agreed that the financial crisis "poses a greater threat to the quality of my life than does the threat of terrorism."

History Professor Compares/Contrasts Current Economic Crisis with Great Depression

Temple University

Bryant Simon, professor of history and director of American studies at Temple University, says that there are some obvious similarities and differences between today's crisis and the Great Depression. But one key difference, said Simon, is that society in the 1930s was better organized, and social groups -- such as labor and even small business groups -- were better able to push back against Congress.
