The Causes of Economic Fluctuations: Possibilities of Anticipation and Control

By Willford I. King | Go to book overview

marked state of unbalance exists among certain segments of the population. Experience indicates that serious business depressions occur only in those instances in which the equilibrium is upset, not only in a few fields, but through most phases of the economic fabric of the nation. Unfortunately, such widespread disturbances do occur from time to time. The unfortunate results of such widespread maladjustments, and the reasons why the economic forces working toward equilibrium do not promptly iron out such maladjustments, will be discussed in later chapters.
