This course deals with 20th century United States economic history, in particular the evolution of the economy itself and the competing claims of various economic interest. We will cover a limited set of issues, such as the economic causes and consequences of the Great Depression and major wars, and the responses of American businesses and policymakers to those shocks. We will study these issues from a variety of perspectives: economic, historical, political, and literary. We will also study important economic trends and developments, along with the material progress of key subgroups such as blue-collar workers, women and African-Americans.
