They discuss the centennial celebration of his presidency, how the U.S. prospered during the Coolidge administration, the real reasons for the Great Depression and how misguided government intervention prolonged the nation's pain, how Coolidge's deep faith shaped his governing style, and Coolidge's rational behind the idea that it's better to kill a bad law than to pass a good one.
