I am reading Donal Worster’s Dust Bowl: The Southern Plains in the 1930s. He argues capitalism caused the Dust Bowl. So far, his argument is very weak. It looks like he is actually arguing ignorance of nature’s capabilities and the technology of the time caused the Dust Bowl.
But, I am very ignorant on the subject of the Dust Bowl. I am wondering what other people see as the cause of the Dust Bowl.
Edit:If the dust bowl is mentioned in one of the lectures, please tell me. I have not gotten to the lectures on the Great Depression yet.
