How Successful Was the New Deal? The Microeconomic Impact of New Deal Spending and Lending Policies in the 1930s
NBER Working Paper No. 21925
---- Acknowledgments ----
I owe special thanks to Shawn Kantor who got me involved with the New Deal and co-authored many of the New Deal papers with me cited here. John Wallis gave me numerous insights based on his own research on the New Deal and has worked with me on several projects. The reference list is truly an acknowledgment list because nearly everybody on the list who published material after 1980 has shared insights on the New Deal with me directly. Claudia Goldin, James Poterba, and Bill Collins aided me greatly in setting up and running conferences on the New Deal that helped shape my writing.
