Is the economy depressing you? Are you out of a job? Broke? Well, never fear! Through exhausting interviews with Great Depression survivor Sally Carrol Harper, I have discovered ways to survive this troubling time.
- Afraid you'll be mugged? Then let every would-be criminal in the vicinity know that they won't be getting any money from you anytime soon.
- Evicted from your apartment? Can't afford your mortgage? Well, why not move to this community known as Hooverville? With its recycled material recently removed from the town dump, you too can live green.
- That private school you're sending Junior to is eating up your savings. Why not send him to this school where tuition is only a bundle of firewood a week or a free meal for the teacher.
- Food seems to get more and more expensive. But this establishment is free. You may have to wait awhile before you are served, however.
Note: It is scary how similar the 1929 Stock Market collapse is compared to our economic downfall. I sincerely hope that the above pictures will remain apart of our history and not become our future.
