"A unique contribution to the literature of business cycles and depressions, this encyclopedia will be invaluable to students and researchers alike. Recommended for any library requiring information on business cycles."

"Particular strengths of this work are its straightforward descriptions of specific events in economic history, and biographical sketches of men and women who contributed to the inquiry into economic oscillations. The thoroughness of its entries and the comprehensive scope of its bibliograhpical references would make Business Cycles and Depressions a valuable addition to any business library."

From the Back Cover

Economic and business uncertainty dominate today's economic analyses. This new Encyclopedia illuminates the subject by offering 327 original articles on every major aspect of business cycles, fluctuations, financial crises, recessions, and depressions. The articles cover a broad range of subjects, including capsule biographies of leading economists born before 1920. The Encyclopedia introduces readers to the principal ideas, concepts, facts, and events and provides a guide to the most important published literature. The articles about specific historical episodes will be especially helpful for charting patterns and constructing theoretical scenarios. Avoiding jargon and highly technical language, the material is accessible to nonspecialists interested in learning about business cycles in general or about a particular phase of a cycle. Bibliographies after each entry and an index are included. A chronology of major business cycles in the U.S. completes the coverage.
