I have also pointed out that two economists said as recently as June that the global economic downturn was worse than the Great Depression.
But if you don’t believe them, here it is from the horse’s mouth . . .
Ben Bernanke said 3 days ago:
A lot of things happened, a lot came together, [and] created probably the worst financial crisis, certainly since the Great Depression and possibly even including the Great Depression.
Even Bernanke admits this could be worse than the Great Depression.
