War and Inflation in the United States from the Revolution to the First Iraq War

Hugh Rockoff

NBER Working Paper No. 21221
Issued in May 2015

---- Acknowledgments ----

This paper was prepared for a conference to honor Mark Harrison, organized by Jari Eloranta and Bishnu Gupta, Warwick University, March 31-April 1, 2014. An early draft was presented at a workshop on the Costs and Consequences of War, organized by Sarah Kreps, Cornell University, April 2013. On that occasion I benefitted from the comments of my discussant Jonathan Kirshner. Farley Grubb helped me understand monetary developments during the Revolutionary War. Nga Nguyen and Jessica Scheld provided able research assistance. I am solely responsible for the remaining errors. The views expressed herein are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
