Booms and Depressions: Some First Principles

Booms and Depressions: Some First Principles


View Issue

Description:
Irving Fisher (1867-1947) was an early practitioner of mathematical economics. Departing from his primary interest in theories of interest rates, capital, and investments, this work is an early foray into analysis of business cycles, and the expression of his debt-deflation theory. In it he identifies nine main factors influencing depressions, provides empirical observations of those factors, and makes suggestions for remedial actions. It is an elaboration of the author's address at the meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, held at New Orleans, Jan. 1, 1932.

Recovery: How Fast and How Far?

Recovery: How Fast and How Far?


View Issue

Description:
This report, produced by the Congressional Budget Office, was written in 1975 when key economic indicators were signaling that the U.S. was recovering from its longest and worst recession since the 1930s. The report discusses forecasts for increasing production, but continued high unemployment, and likely renewed inflation due to rising prices. The CBO presents alternative public policy actions, including recommendations for the Federal Reserve System, that were estimated to have significant effects on the rate of recovery during the following couple of years.
