Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... it'd look more like that.

In reality, the steepest post-war recession in the US was the immediate Post-War recession, which is masked by the use of numbers of jobs lost rather than jobs as a percentage of the population ... but while that was quite steep, it was also met with prompt and strong post-war economic reconstruction policies, so the recovery was also quick.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
