Tabarrok On The Great Depression

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Thursday, May 25, 2017

Alex Tabarrok narrates a very good video on the Great Depression. It's called "Understanding the Great Depression."

The Romance of the Three Kingdoms, by Various Authors (17th Century)

by Angelo M. Codevillavia Classics of Military History
Thursday, May 25, 2017

This massive fictionalized history of the struggles attendant to the death the Han dynasty and the establishment the Jin dynasty (circa AD 169-280) is akin to Shakespeare’s historical plays as well as, in some respects, to Thucydides’ History of the Peloponnesian War.
