This is spot on. I think a

This is spot on. I think a bigger supportive point being overlooked is the power of current technological goods that make our lives easier than they did in the Great Depression. For example, during the Great Depression, theater/movies/etc., were still doing quite well. People wanted to keep getting their entertainment. Nowadays, there are tons of affordable forms of entertainment, thanks to free market innovations. This helps to ease our suffering. We have more generic brands, more affordable entertainment and better ease of communication/transportation.

Looking at our underemployment rates, the percentage of citizens receiving financial assistance, etc., shows a far worse picture of the state of our economy than you'll hear from MSM.
