In the depression they use to basically beat each other for food. Today we have a lot of supply and because of this we don't really have to worry about beating each other up over a small piece of food. There are some others things that are the same though. If you would look at the economy it isn't holding up that well. Just like back then the stock market is crashing and nothing is doing as good as it use to have been. A lot of the food prices are starting to sky rocket and it's a little harder to afford different things.
