I just wonder how long it took before the US government figured that out. You can say about the Nazis what you want, but they would never have allowed such foolish policies as the sort of policies that lead to the Dust Bowl in the first place. They put a lot of effort in agricultural development and the long term sustenance thereof.

Thanks for the recommendation. I prefer sources from the era itself, though. They tend to be more accurate
