Herblock, in the simple and humorous “Midwestern Style” of cartooning, uses the metaphor of a car accident to relate to the ongoing depression in both the American and European economies. In 1931, the collapse in banking led one country after another to withdraw from the gold standard. President Herbert Hoover shored up American banks with loans from private financiers as Europe had done, resulting in the Depression’s worsening in 1932.
