Flatulending?

Having assumed office in the midst of the Great Depression, president Roosevelt took drastic measures (boosting public spending, lowering interest rates to encourage lending...) to revive the American economy.

In 1933 Harold Ickes, FDR's secretary of the interior, was asked why the new president was so bent on shaking things up. "You can't fertilize a 40-acre field," Ickes replied, "by farting through the fence."
