Special Issue on "Hard Times" in COMMON-PLACE Is Now Launched
If you want to understand today’s economic woes, you could do a lot worse than explore hard times in early America. That’s the message in “Hard Times,” the latest edition of Common-place, guest edited by historian Michael Zakim. Point your browser to http://www.common-place.org to meet William Duer, the Bernard Madoff of the 1790s, to learn how one reformed drunkard manipulated the antebellum market for suffering, and to discover the surprising consequences of nineteenth-century bank failures.
