The Three New Deals

“The New Deal, Fascist Italy, and Nazi Germany all profited from the illusion of the nation as an egalitarian community whose members looked out for one’s another welfare under the watchful eyes of a strong leader.” — Wolfgang Schivelbusch, Three New Deals: Reflections on Roosevelt’s America, Mussolini’s Italy, and Hitler’s Germany (New York: Metropolitan Books, 2006), p. 15
