Abstract
 
Description
Evaluates historical evidence, presents new empirical results, and suggests that the explanation of business cycle phenomena may in part depend on how historical data is interpreted. Some studies focus on the Great Depression of the 1930s, early and late 19th-century America, the UK before 1914, interwar Germany and Japan, Canada and the US during the Gold Standard era, and other events in economic history. Others illustrate employing both macro and micro data to investigate such topics as the Phillips curve and labor markets. The nine essays were developed from presentations at an economic history conference in Milan, Italy in September 1994. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or. - from Amzon
