AMERICAN HUMORIST ROBERT BENCHLEY - THE CAUSES OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION American humorist Robert Benchley talks about the primary causes of the Great Depression including overproduction, too little thyroid secretions, too much Vermouth and so on. He then points to a chart behind him: "If you will look at this chart which I have here you will see all what I mean. Here you will see that in 1921 our trade balance was 184.108.40.206. This represented 24 million bushels of wheat which is too much wheat. Under such circumstances it is littler wonder that people did not know whether they were coming or going."
