Cold Meat and How to Disguise It A History of Advice on How to Survive Hard Times: (Hardcover) by Davies, Hunter
Recession, depression, stagflation, deflation--no matter what you call it, it’s not a new thing. Throughout history, economic downturns have forced people to economize, often in what, to modern sensibilities, are mighty peculiar ways. This book looks back at a hundred years of belt-tightening tips from books, magazines, government agencies, and assorted do-gooders. Some of the hints and advice are mystifying, but all are part of social history, and many are as useful today as they were in granny’s day.
