The Grapes of Wrath
"This was first ________ in 1939 while the US was still grappling with the Depression, and what is brilliant about it is that it reveals that ________ problems can't just be dealt with through some wave of the free-market magic wand. It's a very harrowing read…His sense of people finding themselves hugely disadvantaged is something that has a modern-day connotation – the whole debate about ________ today is tied up with this. In both cases it's about migrant ________. In The Grapes of Wrath it's migrant labour from within the US, and it's those people who are often the ________ vulnerable. This is the human aspect of that story, and I think that Steinbeck summarised much of what happened in the ________ Depression far better than many economists did, because he really dealt with the true losses that came through for people who just happened to be down on their luck."
