Review "Peter Temin's lucid discussion rescues the history of the great world economic crisis from the fatalistic conservatism that has become so fashionable in recent years. The analysis is instructive both for those with little formal training in economics and for those with a sophisticated grasp of theory.

Well worth reading and internalizing. Verified Purchase. Peter is a friend of mine, so I am admittedly biased. However, her wrote this book so long ago that he didn't have an extra copy when I asked him for one. Having said all that, Peter is one of the most important economic historians in the world and his insights are always on point. He, along with Barry Eichengreen,, are probably the most knowledgeable of the "experts" on the Great Depression.

It is a pity that our leaders didn't read this book before our last crash Maybe this book is written for professional economists. If so, I doubt if it contains anything they don't already know. From a layman's point of view I find the book to be dull , pedantic ,and poorly wriiten. For instance this sentence, picked by opening the book to a random page, "The Credit Ansalt had unwisely operated during the s as if the Hapsburg empire had not broken up.

Maybe I just expected too much but I was annoyed by his constant references to equilibrium , an idea that doesn't fit with the real world that is in a constant state of flux. Temin's account of the Great Depression differs in almost every from the standard texts. Austrian business cycles, monetary tightness etc.

The Great Depression was the direct result, he says, of the breakdown of peace in the first decade of the twentieth century. The international spirit of co-operation that had existed throughout most of the second half of the 19th century evaporated with the European struggles for empire.

So when crisis loomed in the late s all the lifeboats were full of holes. Franco-German rivallry, the demise of the British Empire and isolationism in the United States all produced paralysis when leadership was needed most. When leadership finally did arrive, it came in the form of social democracy and labour market rigidities which put a floor under the markets but extended the depression in ways not dissimilar to Japan in the s.

If you like your economics filled with Keynes and history this is for you. If Friedman or Schumpeter is more to your taste, then this is worth reading just to see what the other side thinks. Great stuff. This book is definitely not for the casual reader. The appendices with all those formulas do not contribute to the understanding of a general reader like myself. BUT, beyond that, this book is a very well written and thought-provoking economic history of the Great Depression.

It clarifies quite well that the "blame" on the stock market crash was not the cause. The author's points are solidly developed. Any student of American history would do well to read this book just ignore the appendices! In the middle of today's panic economics with a new massive depression lurking at the corner, we should read again the works of Peter Temin, the eminent specialist of the cataclysmic Great Depression of the s in the Western World.

Initial shock Building on his previous book Did monetary forces cause the Great Depression? What changed fundamentally the Western world politically and economically was the First World War. It changed completely existing demographics, agricultural and industrial production and capital movements.

This regime imposed fixed values of national currencies in terms of gold. Balance of payments deficits had to be adjusted by deflation a change in the domestic price level , not by devaluations a change in the exchange rate. When in a severe economic downturn arrived, the wrong medicine was administered: deflation and contractionary monetary policies tight credit which accentuated the downturn and, in fact, discouraged economic activity. The outcome was a massive Depression. Recovery The decline was halted by clairvoyant political leaders and economists who understood that governmental intervention like public works and easy credit were needed as countercyclical measures.

Friedman, B. Friedman's the Depression was not caused by banking panics and B. Bernanke's banking failures did not decrease aggregate demand analyses as well as those who see the Smoot-Hawley tariff as the main culprit the fall in export demand was only a small part of the story.

Today, the political leaders have learned their lessons. This book is a must read for all economists and for all those interested in the history of mankind. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us.
