Hi Paul,

Thanks for the welcome! I've been here for a few weeks, just haven't figured out where to contribute until now :)

I don't know actually when the bear market actually ended. I was "winging it", counting out the Flossary hive-mind to know better than me :)

I know my WWII history fairly well, but not the economics side so well, and definitely not the Great Depression. I guess I know which books to be getting from the library next ;)

The Wikipedia article on the Depression, though incredibly lengthy, doesn't put an end date on it. I was assuming that by 1944, with the end of the war in sight, that you could call it over.

The article does mention that the Depression led into the "wartime economy" which began in 1939. I'm not sure if they're marking the end of the Depression as 1939, and then going further to imply that 1939 marks the beginning of an entirely new era separate from the Depression, though.

I'm good with whatever date y'all want to call the end :)

Paul
