My mother was Margaret Schmidt a research assistant for Gosnell's 'Machine Politics Chicago Model' (1937). Her father was President of the Exchange Bank of Schmidt & Koester, put her through the U of C during the depression and his father was one of the bank's founders.
My grounding in economic theory comes from my mother who was taught economics by Sen. Paul Douglas at the U of C during the Great Depression. I don't claim to be an expert in economics. Rather one of the living connections to those who not only lived through the Great Depression, but were dedicated to making sure that the causes and cures be understood so that we not have to revisit them.
I worked for Corporate Research of Montgomery Ward from 1979 though 1984 during its turn around effort. At that time MW was the 2nd largest retailer and I had close friends who worked for Sears, the largest. At that time, I not only had access to the raw data, but also some of the highest level analysis.
