The Great Depression: The 3rd Horseman of the Apocalypse
"6:5 And when he opened the third seal, I heard the third cherub say, Come. And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and he that sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6:6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four cherubs saying, A coenix [a quart] of wheat for a denarius [14 cents], and three coenices of barley for a denarius; and injure not the oil and wine. (Revelation 6:5-6, The New Testament, Translated from the Original Greek)
