Depression

FEE is proud to partner with the Young America's Foundation (YAF) to produce "Clichés of Progressivism," a series of insightful commentaries covering topics of free enterprise, income inequality, and limited government.

The antecedents to this collection are two classic FEE publications that YAF helped distribute in the past: Clichés of Politics, published in 1994, and the more influential Clichés of Socialism, which made its first appearance in 1962. Indeed, this new collection will contain a number of essays from those two earlier works, updated for the present day where necessary. Other entries first appeared in some version in FEE’s journal, The Freeman. Still others are brand new, never having appeared in print anywhere. The essays were published weekly on the websites of both YAF and FEE: www.yaf.org and FEE.org.

Now that the series is complete, it has been compiled into book form by Regnery under the title Excuse Me, Professor, which you can purchase here. You may also want to read FEE's new weekly series "Real Heroes".

The Great Depression and World War II The Freeman
The Great Depression and World War II
What about World War II? Did it end the Great Depression? More generally, is war good for the economy? I answer both in the negative and borrow here from Ludwig von Mises: “War prosperity is like the prosperity that an earthquake or a plague brings.” As Higgs points out, because of the array of interventions in the wartime economy, war materiel was valued incorrectly and therefore the GDP data overstate economic conditions. Moreover, conscription and arms production gave a misleading employment picture
