@Canageek That would certainly explain it, so you could provide it as an answer and see it holds.

@DVK I would think that Zimbabwe would beat the great depression easily, but I do not know this.

@kubanczyk Thank you for asking me to clarify, what I meant to say was that I am not interested in the economical crisis in Iraq that was caused by the invasion.

comment First evidence for replacement of barter trade by local abstract currency?
Please note that barter trade, was not as common as gift economies. From "Barter" on Wikipedia: "When barter did in fact occur, it was usually between either complete strangers or would-be enemies"

comment What was the worst economic crisis of all times?
Thank you for your answer. I have edited my question to make it, "at least a year" instead of something like a year. I wrote it to avoid answers referring to short-term crashes. One question, though, how do you know that the Great Depression was the biggest economic crisis?

comment Is there any evidence that the Catholic Church slowed innovation during the Middle Ages?
@LennartRegebro I have heard that myself, but one could argue that the great minds merely shifted their focus from theology to science and natural philosophy. Therefore, measuring innovation should arguably be a more neutral measure.

@quant_dev I do not know how it can be measured. What I am sure of is that there will be no accurate measure (number of patents filed is not the solution), but there might be some inaccurate ways that gives a rough indication.
