The Invention of Money

"The instruments of trade and finance are inventions, in the same way that creations of art and discoveries of science are inventions—products of the human imagination. Paper money, backed by the authority of the state, was an astonishing innovation, one that reshaped the world."

Andrew Browning (Part 1): The First Great Depression

Our Lunch & Learn with Andrew Browning on "The Panic of 1819: The First Great Depression" is live on our YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/30tvWjV

The Panic of 1819 may be the most important event in American history that no one has heard of. It was the first nationwide financial crash, ushering in the first Great Depression and introducing the world to the business cycle – the pattern of booms and busts that we have come to know so well. But the Panic of 1819 had additional dire consequences, driving wedges between East and West, North and South that would help create the Missouri Crisis that Thomas Jefferson called "a fire bell in the night.”
