By Dr. Paul A. Cleveland
Professor Cleveland wrote this book because he was fed up with students arriving to his classes with one myth after another burrowed into their brains. His goal was to set the record straight in every area of economic policy: transportation, money, labor, industry, agriculture, and on and on. The result is an outstanding primer for high school students, young college students, or anyone.
It covers the whole of U.S. economic history in a way that sticks to facts and tells a story that hardly anyone hears. This book has needed to be written for many decades. It is a great thing that we finally have it. It is highly recommended for anyone in a position to provide a solid education in economic history. Absolutely eye opening!
