Psychology Press, 2001 - 327 páginas

As in earlier editions of this work, Professor Aldcroft presents a succinct and lucid account of the development and problems of the European economy throughout the twentieth century. The text divides into several clearly defined sub-periods:

  • the aftermath of the First World War and reconstruction in the 1920s
  • the depression and recovery of the 1930s
  • the impact of the Second World War and the new division of Europe
  • the postwar boom of the 1950s and 1960s
  • the growth slowdown of the 1970s and the pervasive problems of inflation and unemployment.

This new edition incorporates extensive revisions, including wide range coverage of the impact of economics union and the demise of the centrally-planned economies, revised bibliographies and topics for discussion.

The European Economy 1914-2000 provides an invaluable guide to the major economic changes in both Western and Eastern Europe during the twentieth century.

Página 1 - Although these incompatible objectives proved elusive in toto, there was, throughout most of the period to the early 1970s, little cause for serious alarm. It is true that there were minor lapses from full employment; fluctuations still occurred but they were very moderate and took the form of growth cycles; some countries experienced periodic balance of payments problems; while prices generally rose continuously though at fairly modest annual rates.
