The Great Wave - David H. FischerSoftback Preview, 1997, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.
Price revolutions and the rhythm of history. From the cover: “Using price records as primary sources, which are more abundant for the study of historical change than any other type of quantifiable data. Fischer uses these materials to frame a narrative of price-movements in western history from the eleventh century to the present. He finds that prices tended to rise throughout this long period, but most of their increase happened in four great waves of inflation — which he calls the price-revolutions of the thirteenth, sixteenth, eighteenth, and twentieth centuries.”
