Greensboro, N.C. (March 1, 2018)– University of Arizona Economics Professor Price Fishback will speak on the economic impact of war during a public lecture at UNC Greensboro on Thursday, March 15 at 5:30 pm.
Many people seem to think war is good for the economy, and cite the American experience during World War II as an example. Professor Fishback will discuss both the amazing output of the war effort as well as how much Americans sacrificed in the process.
Price Fishback is the President-Elect of the Economic History Association, Research Associate, National Bureau of Economic Research, and an acclaimed author of books including Well Worth Saving: How the New Deal Safeguarded Home Ownership and Government and the American Economy: A New History.
