Bluebeard - Kurt Vonnegut

This quote was added by weesin
The Great Depression was going on, so that the station and the streets teemed with homeless people, just as they do today. The newspapers were full of stories of worker layoffs and farm foreclosures and bank failures, just as they are today. All that has changed, in my opinion, is that, thanks to television, we can hide a Great Depression. We may even be hiding a Third World War.

Why was the text changing from "clutch plague" to "Great Depression" while I was typing? They refer to the same things, no? Just pick one.
