Furthermore, spending was increased *massively* from 1929 to 1932,...Uh, table 1 disagrees with your assertion. Spending increased modestly, as it had before. The "massive" increases started in 1932 (and receipts dropped through the floor).http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/budget/HistoricalsDude, seriously?From 1929 to 1932, spending increased 49% during a period of *massive* deflation.The funny thing is that spending increased only 37.6% in the subsequent 3 years from 1932 to 1935, a period of inflation. So spending increased at a *far* greater rate under Hoover than under FDR.
