Through the Seventies and Beyond
Early in 1974, Business Conditions, the predecessor of Economic Perspectives, published a chronology of the economic events of 1973. The Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago has published a similar listing each year since. In this issue we present an abridged account of the decade from 1973 to 1982. The next issue will contain the annual chronology for 1983, selected as usual by the Chicago Fed's longtime business economist and vice president, George Cloos.
