The Great Fiscal Stimulus Package . . . of 1929

Well, here's an interesting little news story about fiscal issues.

Here's a gloomy quote:
Certainly, our economy now has far more differences than similarities with the economy of 1929, and few expect a new depression for the decade ahead. But it's also worth remembering that the best laid plans of presidents, chief executives and senators can sometimes come to nothing.
Good grief, such pessimism (though the reference to Robert Burns is quite nice!). Perhaps a little musical video will bring a smile or two, hm?
