Yet Another Reason to Hate Hitler

Larry Summers on the Charlie Rose show (≈21:50):

Never forget, never forget, and I think it’s very important for Democrats especially to remember this, that if Hitler had not come along, Franklin Roosevelt would have left office in 1941 with an unemployment rate in excess of 15 percent and an economic recovery strategy that had basically failed.

So, yeah...Hitler was a douche.

Another hat tip to Greg Mankiw.
