The Weimar Republic suffered from hyperinflation, political extemism and horrible foreign relations. In 1926, there were two million unemployed people in Germany. By 1932, there were six million unemployed Germans, roughly 10 percent of the population.

Total unemployment here in America through March of 2009? 13.2 million, or 8.5 percent of the population, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics

Yeah, it's time to go see Cabaret.
