More on FDR's depression

FDR has been widely hailed as a hero.  He was no such thing.  FDR's policies in fact caused a second wave of depression after the original downdraft that originated in 1929.  This is not commonly reported but it is in fact true - there was a second, nearly 20% contraction in GDP that occurred as a direct consequence of FDR's policies.  Repeating what FDR did to any material degree will not help, and any apparent "relief" will be false.
