Harry S Truman:The Economics of a Populist President


  • E Ray Canterbery

    (Florida State University, USA)


Harry S Truman is best remembered as the President who witnessed the swift arrival of the Cold War in the tumultuous years after World War Two. Little however has been written to show that he was also the populist President who set the political economic course for the United States to win it merely 40 years later.
