First edition. Red cloth. No jacket. 454 pages. Lightner, a Chicago publisher and founder of the Lightner Museum in St. Augustine, Florida, wrote this influential study of depressions, focusing mainly on American depressions and economic cycles, from 1785 to 1921, examining individual depressions in their own chapters. Lightner also traces them back to Roman times, citing a credit crisis in ancient Rome and the effort undertaken to solve it. The curator of the Hess Collection on financial markets (University of Toledo's 1999 exhibition) notes, "Written following the 1920 depression that led to his friend's suicide, this author's history maintains that financial upheavals and their resultant reforms have 'swayed the course of humanity in its struggles equally as much as has war.'" Lightner also discusses the impacts of "credit that has reached its limit" concluding that a "depression will result." (see Clif Droke. Gold and Financial Crisis, quoting Lightner.).
