The National Association of Scholars will hold a webinar on Thursday, January 20 from noon to 1:30 p.m. MST entitled, 1929:  The Great Depression.

The webinar description reads, “At the beginning of the 1930s, the collapse of the stock market led to a severe economic depression that lasted through most of the decade. Unemployment hit record highs, GDP dropped precipitously, and many industries ground to a halt.

What made the Great Depression such a difficult slump to climb out of? How did the Great Depression shape the character of those who lived through it? What effects did this have on political and economic life in the forthcoming decades?

This webinar will feature Alexander J. Field, Michel and Mary Orradre Professor of Economics at Santa Clara University; Peter Temin, Professor Emeritus of Economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and Amity Shlaes, author of The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression.”
