Isn’t magic fascinating? The American public depicted here seems to think so. They are so enthralled by Uncle Sam’s tricks they appear as naive as a child, blinded by faith in only what they see. The cartoonist, Herbert Johnson, drew multiple sketches on depicting the American economic situation in the early 20th century. Clearly he thinks the American public is being duped.
