AFGD reviewed in Cleveland Fed’s Forefront Magazine

coverDaniel Littman, an economist in the Research Department of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, reviews America’s First Great Depression in the current issue of Forefront, the Bank’s magazine: “The parallels between pre-industrial America’s 1837 financial crisis and that of our own time are particularly strong.  The beauty of Roberts’ book is that the reader can see the entire arc of the crisis, from beginning to end, in a historical context—something that studies of the 2008 event will lack for many years to come.  Roberts nicely combines narrative history with analysis. His book is accessible to both the expert and the novice in economic history. Highly recommended.”  Read the review.
