I hope not. But then the left always likes to repeat mistakes that were made

The government hasn’t created a bunch of cartels to impose minimum prices like they did during the depression. The idea was that competition was too “ruinous” and that falling prices were the sign of an unhealthy economy. Unless of course a free market monopoly was emerging then of course anti-trust had to be applied to “protect” the consumer and ensure competition.

We also don’t have a top marginal tax rate of above 50%. FDR was in favor of 100% at one point, but was dissuaded by advisers. And so far we haven’t slaughtered 6 million pigs or burned 10 million acres of cotton.

On the other hand we spent nearly a trillion on “stimulus”, the Fed has been ramping up the proverbial printing press like nothing seen before, and we’re on the road to nationalization. Good times.
