I think us Red Staters who arent in the major cities will be fine.
That's pretty much what my grandmother said about the depression when my niece asked her about it last week. Granny said that aside from the dust bowl region it didn't affect rural people all that much.

Back in the mid '50s-'60s I was a tramp printer, with a new job every few months. (Was trying to get a drivers license from every state in the Union. (Seemed like a good idea at the time)) Gave it up when Hawaii and Alaska came in.
I made it a point to talk with the Old Timers re: the Depression. The general theme was that while they didn't have any money, those on farms made out OK as far as food and shelter went. For the city folks, it was a different story.
