What happened during our great depression is that government regulated the economy to the point where businessmen were unable to reinvest and expand rationally. You would be hard pressed to come up with a modern example of major regulation doing anything but reducing production and job growth.

Freeman Dyson said so, and it’s good enough for me (sarcasm alert). Every major totalitarian, fascist, and social control movement of the last two centuries is presented as scientific
