Short video on how people got by during The Great Depression.  On an on and off basis, I've been reading books on this subject matter and this video sums it up very well.

Two fun and easy reading books that are filled with first hand accounts include: We Had Everything But Money and its sequel, When the Banks Closed, Our Hearts Opened.

Farmers banded together and beat up anyone bidding on foreclosure auctions. Some ran the bankers out of town.

Maybe some of the merchant class were called mean names after they acquired family farms that had been passed down for generations. Or families were forced to prostitute their kids to a degenerate landlord in the city. Oh the horrors of ethnic intimidation against the chosen.
