The Credit Crunch and the 3rd Century Roman Recession

http://minervamagazine.com/news.asp?...ue=NOV_DEC2008

Here's an interesting editorial in the latest Minerva, that tries to compare the current financial situation in the US with that of Rome in the 3rd century AD. Personally, I don't think it's that simple, however it's still a good point to consider and ask ourselves if we have progressed all that much since then, in other than technological terms.

Also, if anyone has somewhat credible online sources on the Roman recession(s), please post them here. I am very interested in that topic.

Thus far no one has tried to pass me a minimus in change. The portraits on my pocket change all look completely official.

Yeah, no one bothers with circulation coinage nowadays. It's all digital now, makes it easier.
