Oklahoma Hoovervilles

Those of you with an interest in history — and in particular, the Great Depression — may be interested in viewing these Powerpoint slides compiled at the Oklahoma Council on Economic Education's website:

OCEE: Oklahoma Hoovervilles

If you're like me, you'll find that the 48 slides of Hooverville families do wonders for renewing your appreciation of our current economic landscape ... recession or no. And there are a few more related slideshows on this OCEE Teacher Resource page.

(NOTE: Microsoft makes available a free Powerpoint viewer for folks who don't have Powerpoint or the Office suite.)

Well THAT'S pretty dang depressing. Surely you're not suggesting we're on the same path? Insert head in sand here ----> ___

Thoughts on my personal finances, goals, experiences, motivations, and accomplishments (or lack thereof).

My financial life began turning around when I took responsibility for it.
