2. The Wizard of OZ was written as a parable about the harsh monetary
policies going on around the world at the turn of the century. No surprise we our new robber barons in that.

to red..silver was for the silver standard...you know..down the yellow brick road). Add monetary policy or gold standard to the google and maybe you will catch an article on it. I think I read it somewhere... too lazy to look through all my books.

Let me know if you find something.

I think the fight at the time was that the gold standard was keeping monetary policy from being flexible..and there was not enough supply and it caused recession or unemployment. The rich had the stability and lack of inflation they wanted..but the poor were paying for it! You know..the usual.

Cannot remember exactly what the issue was at the time.

7. Let's fill in the rest!
Who's the cowardly lion? Rumsfeld?

And the wicked witch -- I'd nominate either Lynn Cheney or Karen Hughes. Tough one there.

The good witch?

The wizard himself -- I'd say Rove except the wizard of Oz turned out to be a nice guy.
