    In the minds of historians and the American public alike, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was one of our greatest presidents, not least because he supposedly saved America from the Great Depression. But as historian Jim Powell reveals in this groundbreaking book, Roosevelt's New Deal policies actually prolonged and exacerbated the economic disaster.

    David says: "Very Important"
    "Excellent Rebuttal of Conventional Wisdom"
    Overall

    This is an excellent survey of FDR's damaging actions, and how they ended up extending the Great Depression. It is very relevant to what is going on today. Some of FDR's actions seemed well intentioned, and some were deviously politically motivated. This book reviews taxes to price fixing to union policy to his supreme court packing schemes. An excellent analysis that counters the conventional liberal wisdom that FDR was a great president.
