Explains the relationship between democracy and thrift in the Second World War home-front campaigns. Looks at make-do-and-mend in the UK and Roosevelt’s ‘fireside chats’ in the US. Goes on to analyse the ways in which this era has been used by current-day politicians and institutions to create nostalgia, and argues this nostalgia is used to fuel acceptance of austerity policies.
