Note To Readers

Telling my story inevitably involves using some economic and financial terms that may not be familiar to all readers. I have tried to keep them to a minimum. On first usage, I have defined the terms. Later references are usually freestanding. For those who want a reminder or further clarification, a glossary at the end of the book provides detail. For the numerically inclined, two appendixes give overviews of the American economy since World War II. The first shows basic annual statistics—economic growth, unemployment, inflation, interest rates, stock prices. The second describes business expansions and recessions.
