Listened to a Freakonomics podcast the other day and it claimed we "won" the cold war because of the American grocery store.  Our people were fed.  The USSR couldn't figure out how to do that and their store shelves were bare.  Interesting theory for sure.

Watching it now, saw this post during a commercial. So far it's interesting.

I started to watch it for a while but was forced to go away from the TV.  But at least I saw the beginnings of the Kelloggs and C. W. Post drama, and was shocked that this is how those companies got started.

We watched the first episode last night.

Probably on the hook for recording the rest now.

Interesting stuff for sure.

America was the worlds ultimate "Emerging Economy" during this era. History will tell the story as it continues to unfold.
