Hall of Mirrors

The Great Depression, The Great Recession, and the Uses-and Misuses-of History

Barry Eichengreen

  • First and only systematic comparative analysis of the two great economic and financial crises of the last 100 years
  • Provides an integrated account of experience in the US and Europe, which together constituted the epicenter of the recent crisis and were similarly at the center of the Great Depression
  • Economic analysis is leavened by anecdote and personalities, with key figures in both crises introduced and humanized
  • Shows how the history of the Great Depression shaped how policy makers perceived and responded to the Global Credit Crisis, but equally how the recent crisis will in turn re-shape how we see the Depression
