The Great Depression in the United States

MILTON FRIEDMAN and ANNA JACOBSON SCHWARTZ, A Monetary History of the United States, 1867–1960 (1963, reissued 1993), chapter 7, “The Great Contraction,” is the single most important study of the Great Depression in the United States, detailing ways in which banking panics and monetary contraction contributed to the economic downturn.

Scholarly studies that analyze the role of particular factors in the American Depression

include: BEN S. BERNANKE, “Nonmonetary Effects of the Financial Crisis in the Propagation of the Great Depression,” American Economic Review, 73(3):257–276 (June 1983); STEPHEN G.

CECCHETTI, “Prices During the Great Depression: Was the Deflation of 1930-1932 Really

Unanticipated?” American Economic Review 82(1):141-156 (March 1992); CHRISTINA D.

ROMER, “The Great Crash and the Onset of the Great Depression,” Quarterly Journal of

Economics, 105(3):597–624 (August 1990); and PETER TEMIN, Did Monetary Forces Cause the Great Depression? (1976). JOHN KENNETH GALBRAITH, The Great Crash, 1929 (1954, reissued 1997), is a riveting account of the 1929 stock market crash, one of the events leading up to the Great Depression in the United States.
