Economic Consequences of U.S. Mobilization for the Second World War

«
“Alex Field again overturns conventional wisdom, showing that there was no ‘productivity miracle’ during World War II.  Astute, clever, and methodical, every chapter is full of surprises.”—Gavin Wright, Coe Professor of American Economic History emeritus, Stanford University

“With lucid prose and rigorous analysis, Field offers a major re-interpretation of how the war was won and why the postwar economy boomed. A must-read for all interested in twentieth-century U.S. history.”—Paul Rhode, University of Michigan

“Alexander Field overturns the claim that World War II was a great boon to productivity in the United States. The analytical rigor will satisfy the demanding specialist, but the writing is so clear that it is accessible to the general reader. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the evolution of technology and the growth of productivity in the United States.”—Hugh Rockoff, author of America’s Economic Way of War

“In this provocative account of the U.S. economy in the 1940s, Alexander Field shows that war, even when it may seem to bring prosperity, is fundamentally about chaos and waste.”—Mark R. Wilson, author of Destructive Creation: American Business and the Winning of World War II
 
“While the United States produced prodigious amounts of war goods during WWII, the record of industrial productivity was not a miracle. Alex Field does a brilliant job producing an original, careful, and convincing treatment.”—Michael Edelstein, Emeritus Professor of Economics, City University of New York
 
“Alex Field has added another superb work to his scholarship on the history of productivity in America. World War II involved sacrifices on the part of so many and he documents the positive and negative impacts of the war on technological change. His analysis is a must read because it is based on deep dives into the production processes, the data on productivity, and the potential for spillover from military activity to a peacetime economy.”—Price V. Fishback, coauthor of Well Worth Saving: How the New Deal Safeguarded Home Ownership
