Richard Sylla on America’s First Great Depression

Richard Sylla, Henry Kaufman Professor of the History of Financial Institutions and Markets, New York University, has contributed a comment on America’s First Great Depression: “Alasdair Roberts’s poignant yet balanced account of the financial, economic, and political crises of the 1830s and 1840s provides us with a distant mirror reflecting our current travails. By not knowing and learning from history, we continue to make the same mistakes our ancestors did. If you want to complete your education, America’s First Great Depression is a good place to begin.”
