WW 2 Economics

Professor Jim Lacey at the Soldiers', Sailors', Marines', 
Coast Guard and Airmen’s Club in New York City.

Iowa Andy, who may not be in Iowa anymore, reports:
Just watched a humorous C-SPAN history program. an author who had written a book about the USA economics of World War II. What was funny, his New York City audience were 90-year-old economic wonks, a very argumentative group, questioning sources, who said what when, when shipyard contracts were initiated/cancelled,  how Germany had production but whose logistics were destroyed,  how Japan ran out of planes & pilots through bad economic planning.  Then assailing the podium & speaker after the mics were turned off.  I liked the appearance of a stooped bald pated rabble rouser with his baggy black & white checked shirt, 2 foot scraggly red beard.
Ah war, how invigorating!
Don't really know where he is today. Man jets around the country like he's playing hop scotch. The video is an hour and a half long. Somebody has a longer attention span than I do.
