Remembering the Great Depression -- Encore Presentation

The Federal Reserve Chairman says the recession is over. That may be. But it sure doesn't feel that way to the millions who are still unemployed or working less than they'd like. And yet millions have come through this kind of pain before and some still remember it well. The Great Depression puts today’s troubles into perspective. Unemployment hit 23 percent. Some people survived by turning lawns into gardens, potato sacks into petticoats and a lot of sharing with neighbors. Friday morning at 9 on the Sound of Ideas, we’re reprising a show with Regina Brett about the lessons that can be gleamed from that difficult time. **This is an encore presentation of a program that originally aired January 31, 2009.**
