”The most comprehensive book ever to appear on unemployment in the United States.”
”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.”
”Vedder and Gallaway show convincingly that we need once again to rethink our entire notion of unemployment.”
”A book of great interest.”
