What is the larger story behind the Great Depression? Is the stock market and the 1929 crash really the whole picture?

Professor Paige Glotzer lends her expertise and insight into the bigger picture of the early 20th century economy to answer this question. The short answer is no, the stock market was only a part of a larger, longer-term issue. Dr. Glotzer dives into the complexities that make up an economic downturn.
