Debt Deflation and Financial Instability: Two Historical Explorations
Recent research, both historical and contemporary, has broadened existing analyses of the connections between financial markets and macroeconomic conditions to embrace debt deflation and financial instability explanations for business cycle fluctuations. This paper explores two episodes on which much of this research has focused: the post-bellum United States and the global depression of the 1930s. It seeks to distinguish the effects of bank failures and debt deflation and to probe the connections between them.
