Economic Forces in American History

This is a set of outlines for a variety of lectures concerning economics and its relationship with history. Although these outlines were developed as a course for economics instructors, they provide a wealth of information for the economics educator. Topics include: the impact of slavery, wars, bank regulations, agriculture, transportation, the New Deal, and many others. Many of the outlines provide data, for instance, population changes in the U.S. during early settlement.
