An Economic History of the United States : Conquest, Conflict, and Struggles for Equality Paperback
The economy of the United States is constantly evolving in response to wars, technological innovations, cultural revolutions, and political maneuverings.
Tracing the economic machine of the United States from its first experiments in the colonies to the post-Great Recession era of today, Frederick S.
Weaver creates a dynamic narrative of this country's progression through times of feast and times of famine.
Weaver explores diverse areas of the market beyond the financial sector, examining historical fluctuations in distribution of income, how the ebb and flow of specific industries have influenced the shape of the market, and, ultimately, how the economy of the United States has made America the nation we know today.
Conquest, Conflict, and Struggles for Equality: An Economic History of the United States is a thoughtful and accessible introduction to the subject of American economic history, suitable for undergraduate courses in US political and economic history.
