"The Great Depression was the largest economic down-turn in the history of the United States." - shouldn't read "the world"? ħumanUser talk:Human 16:14, 13 October 2008 (EDT)

An argument could probably be made that economic activity during the Black Plague or the "fall of Rome" or some such was much worse...but it was definitely international. Researcher 22:49, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

Unfortunately, the rest of the article continues the same American-centric bias, but I don't know or care enough to fix it. Researcher 18:29, 15 October 2008 (EDT)

I basically rewrote the entire thing because it was kind of sparse/lacked goat/whatever. If we're going to have a GD topic, might as well make the main page thorough.Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 20:46, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
