    A lot of them.

    The '20s were known as the "Roaring 20's"

    Because everything was booming following WW1

    What we need to look at is what companies got rich during the 30s.

    All the real losses and horror came in the 30s.

    Our '20s just ended, that ship has sailed.

    We have to start looking at what businesses thrived and grew DURING the bad '30s.
