MEDIA REVIEWS

"A triple hit: an engaging narrative of a century of U.S. economic history . . . an attack on the mythology that high wage rates and government spending reduce unemployment and a critique on wrong-headed public policies since 1930 that have raised unemployment levels."

-Anna J. Schwartz,National Bureau of Economic Research

"The most comprehensive book ever to appear on unemployment in the United States."

-George Gilder,author of Wealth and Poverty

"Vedder and Gallaway show convincingly that we need once again to rethink our entire notion of unemployment."

-Jonathan R. T. Hughes,Northwestern University

"A book of great interest."

-Kenneth Boulding
