This book represents a fascinating compilation of 24 articles written in 1933 and 1934 detailing all of the major facets of the New Deal. It is written from the perspective of a typical 1930s American family, the Joneses, with a conservative, hard working father, a stay at home mom, and more progressive, liberal children. They debate the pros and cons of the alphabet soup of New Deal programs like the NRA, RFC, CCC, and PWA, just to name a few. Like today, there is enormous controversy and anxiety regarding unprecedented government involvement in business and the lives of every day Americans.
