I have read in a number of Roosevelt's biographies that as Governor of New York, Roosevelt was not so aware of how economics works. He recognized that radical change was needed to respond to the Great Depression, but did not know what changes were needed. How were the reforms that FDR proposed as Governor of New York indicative of how he was "trying out" policies? I read that his policies contradicted each other, but which reforms specifically were contradictory and why?
