Return To Mises Academy: The New Deal with Thomas Woods
In the continuing pursuit of the truth, Nueva Salamanca is once again taking up studies at the Mises Academy! This time it is to study the New Deal and its effects under the prolific and insightful Tom Woods. The course description states:
"This online course taught by historian Thomas Woods runs from September 6 through October 22, 2010. It examines the critical period of American history from the stock market crash of 1929 to the end of World War II, focusing on domestic affairs.
