It is axiomatic in many fields that one must learn from history in order to avoid repeating it. In business, students and professionals learn much from recent history, from peers and mentors, from case studies, and from experience—but all too infrequently do economic actors step back for a panoramic view of the landscape of political economy across time. Absent the perspective of the large-scale boom and bust cycle, it is exceedingly tempting to believe that each new wave of growth and development is somehow fundamentally different from those that came before it, and immune to the pitfalls that have turned boom to bust before. History provides valuable lessons, and educated leaders in the world of business should understand that context and be able to apply the lessons of the past to the decisions that shape the present and the future.
