Check out this 10 minute movie clip from 1933 touting the "Don't worry, be happy" message that inflation is good for you.
Think back...1933...when did the Great Depression actually end? I believe that would be around 1941 or so, when the U.S. entered World War II.
Put this movie in color, add two more stars to the flag, update the automotive plant to be churning out mandated 42 mpg cars, and stick Obama's picture on top of Roosevelt's, and I think you'll here the sales pitch they're trying to give us now.
Enjoy...and remember "Happy Days are Here Again..."
