Would you listen to President Herbert Hoover's Last Public Address again? Why?
Each time I listen it makes more sense of how world economies depend on each other and how each country needs to keep the confidence of its people and other countries. The scores of countries that failed after manufacturing their own currency, borrowing heavily, and not balancing their budget. Sound familiar?
What did you like best about this story?
It was interesting to hear his take on the upcoming world problems leading to world war 2. He mentioned war could come soon. He really understood how difficult it was for countries to match currency and trade during these rough times. Hoover wanted to continue the gold standard and even include silver, but he did admit that someday we could get away from it.
What does John Greenman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I think he brings Hoovers candor out well and the difficulty in speaking without modern audio equipment. It sounds authentic.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
How Hoover was gracious and respectful of the democratic party winning the election and for his fellow republicans to not be partisan but to support what was best for the american peoples welfare. Hoover was a true statesman.
Any additional comments?
I wish you would put "The Ordeal of Woodrow Wilson"by Hoover and "Freedom Betrayed" by Hoover and George H. Nash on audible.com
