“History Shows”

stable money
production-control schemes

while Roosevelt, in a press conference,
stressed the promise of rationalization, stability and order
harmony with the business community

no one wants uncontrolled inflation
it would undoubtedly embarrass members
of the House
and of the Senate

the bargaining for tariff reductions
in retrospect
indeed, it was time
semantics aside

the more realistic perception of relief
that something be done immediately
that it be decided now

“Domestic Currency Problem”
the gold experiment

to retrace the steps that we have taken

Roosevelt burst out angrily,
“I am sick and tired of being told by the Cabinet,
by Henry and by everybody else for the last two weeks
what’s the matter with the country and nobody suggests what I should do.”
