American Business Cycle Volatility in Historical Perspective: Revised Estimates of Real GDP, 1869-1913
AbstractThis paper examines the magnitude and timing of American business cycles from 1869 to 1928, with particular emphasis on the pre-World War I period. A new real output series is constructed which resurrects the conclusion that pre-World War I business cycles were twice as severe as post-World War II business cycles.
