"We were bewildered by the causes of this greatest of all depressions .... the watchword of that day was "balance the budget and restore confidence."
We had not even then learned to conquer the problem of unemployment, how to distribute the abundance that our .... skills could produce.

The common fault and cause of these failures lies not in our democratic institutions, not in our ability to produce ... but in our thinking.... the failure is due to our inability to deal with the basic causes of political and social upheavals ... that lead to war.
We are too prodigal in diverting our human and material resources to military preparations for war .... and too conservative about using them to alleviate human misery on which communism and aggression both feed. "
