How has the depression affected you?
Well we don’t have as nearly as much disposable income as before, we have to be much more frugal and conservative of what we
What do you think should be done to solve this issue?
The government should put restrictions on the businessmen who caused this and create jobs.
Who is to blame for the depression?
I think President Hoover is. Listen, I’m not a banker but I know that this could have been prevented with government

What do you do for fun?
The wife and I like to go to the city to watch movies and plays, the kids like to visit family and play with each other.
