Horwitz versus Eggertsson on the Great Depression

Over at Coordination Problem, Steve Horwitz discusses his exchange with Gauti Eggertsson in regards to Eggertsson's claim that Roosevelt's policies led the U.S. out of the Great Depression. Horwitz disagrees with this view of history. It is an interesting exchange and well worth the read.
