Part 1: How the Emerging EconomyWill Put Even More People Out of Work
The Great Depression forged the idenes of a generaon of Americans. Their mindsetand habits remained unchanged long aer the economy recovered. It is no wonder thatthis event had such an impact on so many people. In 1933, at the lowest point of thisevent, over 25%—1 in 4 people—were unemployed. The rate for non-farm workers waseven worse. In industry and business, the unemployment rate was 37%.
This was the era that spawned Bonnie and Clyde, Baby Face Nelson, Frank Ni, Machine
Gun Kelly, and the inimitable Al Capone—some of America’s most notorious criminals. It
was also the me that produced the o-romancized, semi-outlaw hobo. The Shantytowns
and Okie migrants chronicled by John Steinbeck in
The Grapes of Wrath
really existed.
The recent economic downturn, or the “Great
Recession” as some have dubbed it, has many
disturbing parallels with the Depression of the 1930s.One thing is as true now as it was then: desperatemes drive people to desperate measures. Ourunemployment rate is hovering around 10%—ocially.While that gure isn’t as high as it was in the GreatDepression, many believe the unocial rate is muchhigher, since ocial gures do not reect people whohave simply given up looking for work. The last methe unemployment rate was 10% was during the early1980s, when unemployment stayed above 10% for 8
months straight.
 Unemployment is just part of the picture. Homeforeclosures are at a record high. Over one million
homes were seized in 2010, pung enrely new segments of the populaon out onAmerica’s streets with no shelter, food, or clothing. Today’s homeless are like the storied
hoboes of the Great Depression
—and their numbers are growing at the rate of about20,000 new homeless people per year. There doesn’t seem to be an end in sight as thereis a full pipeline of future foreclosures coming, with an esmated 5 million homeowners
seriously delinquent on their mortgage payments.
Over a million homes wereforeclosed upon in 2010. The trendis not expected to slow any timesoon.
