 Kris Mitchener : Grasping Reality with Eight Tentacles : Online Journal

Friday, Feb. 11, 2011

Kris Mitchener, Associate Professor of Economics, was recently quoted in Grasping Reality with Eight Tentacles, the online journal of economist J. Bradford DeLong.  The journal entry “Comments on Doug Irwin: Peddling Protectionism: Smoot-Hawley and the Great Depression” reviews and praises Irwin’s new book about the Smoot- Hawley tariff of 1930.  Mitchener is one of four people to offer his opinion of the book, saying, “It would not surprise me if this became the definitive economic history of the Smoot-Hawley Tariff. Synthesizing and fleshing out the best research and nicely connecting economics and politics, Peddling Protectionism provides a fuller accounting of, and a deeper perspective on, what is arguably the best-known U.S. tariff of the twentieth century.”
