Two Books You Should Consider Reading
Below are two books that you should consider reading. The first book is the history of the Great Depression. It is written for the academic/professional economist so it can be a bit of tough slog from time to time.
The World in Depression by Charles Kindleberger
The second book is about Depression Economics in the late 20th century and is written for the layman.
I found both books to be scary considering what is going on now.
PS - I am not trying to promote Amazon, I just happen to know their website better.
