Prohibition-era New York swims in a sea of illegal booze and the party looks like it’ll never end. Even so, dark deeds and bad men lurk behind the good life. Returning from Europe’s... More > conflicts, stoic Riley rushes back to the farm but smooth-talker Cornelius aspires to a new life. As a crime reporter amidst the Algonquin Round Table’s glitterati and the seedy underbelly where deals get done and so do people, he gets a deadly ringside seat as organized crime changes forever. Back in Missouri, Riley meets the daughter he’s never seen, though dark scars from the past loom. When Cornelius falls into the clutches of a criminal mastermind, Riley heads east to settle accounts. The city that never sleeps had better watch out. Riley and Cornelius stumble across the secrets behind three of history’s great unsolved mysteries.

The Roaring Twenties - Turning Up the Volume By Bernard C. Beaudreau
Paperback: $29.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
In this volume, subtitled Turning Up the Volume, the various measures taken by successive Administrations to fully utilize the new-found potential are examined critically. These include the... More > Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act of 1930, the National Industrial Recovery Act of 1933 and the National Labor Relations Act of 1935. The readings in this case consist of my own published work on the topic over the course of the past decade. The articles in question set out to do two things, namely situate the relevant policy measure in the appropriate historical context, namely the presence of output gaps, and second, evaluate the efficacy or wisdom of the proposed policy measures. For example, contrary to popular belief, the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act was a response to growing excess-capacity-related stagnation in the form of unemployment. Evidence is presented which shows that the output gaps referred to above were clearly on the minds of Ranking Republicans at the Kansas City National Convention in June 1928.< Less

GDP growth was... More > particularly strong, as was employment and investment. However, as counterintuitive as it may sound or appear, the 1920s were also years of stagnation, stagnation that owed to the fact that the new, greater potential was not being fully exploited. In other words, while things were great, they still fell short of the potential that had been created, resulting in a form of “growth stagnation.” That is, stagnation in the midst of what was exceptional growth.
