Paul Krugman’s column, Franklin Delano Obama?, explains a lot about what did and didn’t happen during Franklin Roosevelt’s attempt to solve the Depression era economic crisis. We are probably going to hear a lot of attacks on Roosevelt’s record. It is nice to keep in mind what were his true successes and failures.
I have heard the right wing attacks that Krugman debunks. This is the first time I have heard a rebuttal from someone that I can believe.
