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."

I have two criticisms, but they shouldn't be interpreted to mean that the video is weak: it's quite good.

quoting Thomas J. Sargentvia Forbes
Wednesday, May 24, 2017

According to Japan’s GDP figure for the first quarter of 2017 (released on May 18), the Japanese economy has grown by an annualized real rate of 2.2%. Most welcome this as the country's longest economic expansion in 11 years. Don't be fooled by this figure. It is actually a warning sign for Japan’s policymakers. Why? Because the nominal GDP has been shrinking slightly. The gap between growing real GDP and slightly shrinking nominal GDP is, of course, deflation. GDP deflator has declined by 0.6%.
