Here's a chance to implement some bloviation reduction.

It doesn't matter when the SH Act was introduced because it couldn't have any effect until it became law - which was 1930.

The article you led off with many posts back asserted that SH was the main cause of the GD. Which is boolshite since it wasn't in existence until after the GD began.

See how easy it is to not make tedious response posts? Facts are useful that way.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.
