Andrew Wender Cohen, Dr. Walter Montgomery and Marian Gruber Professor of History, was quoted in the PolitiFact article "Is protectionism a big part of the Great Depression, as Ben Sasse said?" "Economists today debate the tariffs’ effect on the Great Depression -- some feel it substantially worsened the downturn, while others think its negative effect was small," says Cohen. 06/01/1
