About this title

Synopsis:

Dmitri Kondratiev has given his name to business cycles. We call the ups and downs "Kondratiev Waves". Other economists have studied the field but Kondratiev made it his career and paid for his dedication with his life, landing on one of Stalin's many lists as individuals to be executed, in his case in the year 1938. The existence of the business cycle is interwoven with the lives of the Doran family. Robinson Doran has retired from a professorship in economics and in a precipitous fashion moves to the country to take up farming. He believes that life as we have known it is coming to an end. Economic life, that is. Robinson's wife, Rose, refuses to move to the country. She takes up with a widower out of loneliness. Their son, Stanton, loses his job on the newspaper but slowly rebuilds his life. Their daughter, Harriet, a medical doctor, saves lives through it all. There is a romantic interest, who happens on Robinson at his farm, providing him company and gardening skills. A new tax code to replace the current one is provided by Robinson and Stanton. The national debt is analyzed. Life in the United States returns to normal after a long decade. The business cycle is never repealed, its place made secure by the vagaries of human beings. Kondratiev lives on.

About the Author:

Fred Weekes lives in Lakewood, Washington, a city forty-five miles south of Seattle on the I-5 corridor. After a career in business and engineering he retired to writing on topics that interested him: World War II aviation, general reference, and love stories. Some of these titles are available through iUniverse. Some can be found at Amazon for reading on one's Kindle. He enjoys writing romances. They may be his favorites. The room that Weekes writes in has a fine view of a lake. Water fowl are in abundance and an occasional heron and eagle come by. Weekes holds degrees from the University of Pennsylvania and Catholic University of America. He prizes these as he sees no chance of earning additional degrees.
