Description 

"Excellent...I highly recommend this book." - Ron Paul

Why is the boom-and-bust cycle so persistent? Why did economists fail to predict the recent economic meltdown--or to pull us out of the crisis more quickly? And how can we prevent future calamities?

Mainstream economics has no adequate answers for these pressing questions. In the powerful and eye-opening new book It Didn't Have to Be This Way, Harry Veryser shows how the Austrian School of economic provides the proper alternative to the failed interventionist approach: liberty, private property, and the unhampered market.

"I am blown away by how much ground Veryser covers in this important book, and how skillfully he covers it....I strongly recommend it." - THOMAS E. WOODS JR., bestselling author of Meltdown

“Harry Veryser has written an excellent book not only on Austrian economics but also on a century and a half of economic history. His is a penetrating analysis of the most recent economic crisis. Professor Veryser’s careful analysis of the case for the gold standard is, in itself, outstanding scholarship.” —LEWIS E. LEHRMAN, cofounder of the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, author of The True Gold Standard
