By Eric Kramer on May 30, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a book on the cause of the great depression in the 1930's. I found it to be clear and interesting, and readable even for someone who's never had a course on economics.

The basic premise is fascinating: the great depression was not caused by stock market speculators. Rather, the author argues that rapid adoption of electric power in factories between 1900 and 1930 created a drop in the demand for workers, kept wages low, and created unemployment.
