Description

This fast-paced course summarizing vital economic lessons learned in the last century provides invaluable guidance for understanding the current economy.

Each lecture focuses exclusively on one decade of the 1900s to achieve a clear understanding of economic developments and outside influences on the U.S. economy.

In some cases, you examine well-defined events like the creation of the Federal Reserve or the war in Vietnam. In other lectures, you explore larger societal shifts such as the evolving role of women in the economy and changing consumption patterns.

Interesting revelations include insights that the stock market crash of 1929 was not a substantial cause of the Great Depression and that F.D.R.s New Deal may have actually slowed economic recovery.
