About this Item

"This textbook provides a survey of the key macroeconomic questions that arise from the experience of the British economy from 1919 to 1939. Why was unemployment so high and persistent in the interwar years when compared with the low unemployment rates of the pre-1913 era? Did the choice of making a fast transition to the pre-1913 gold parity constrain the economy to a low growth equilibrium? Why were interwar business cycles so volatile when compared with the pre-1913 era? Did tariffs stimulate economic recovery in the 1930s?" This book has 195 pages and is illustrated. The text contains NO internal markings whatsoever. Bookseller Inventory # 029674

Synopsis:

Characterized by mass unemployment, protectionism, diverse exchange rate regimes, the disintegration of the world trade, and poor long-term growth prospects, the interwar period was, by any standards, a remarkable one. This textbook provides a survey of the key macroeconomic questions that arose from the experience of the British economy from 1919 to 1939. A comparative approach is adopted throughout, placing the UK experience in the context of the world economy. The book continually applies economic theory to historical examples.
