Hard Times by Tom Clark,Anthony Heath Summary

2008 was a watershed year for global finance. The banking system was eventually pulled back from the brink, but the world was saddled with the worst slump since the 1930s Depression, and millions were left unemployed. While numerous books have addressed the financial crisis, very little has been written about its social consequences. Journalist Tom Clark draws on the research of a transatlantic team led by Professors Anthony Heath and Robert D. Putnam to determine the great recession’s toll on individuals, families, and community bonds in the United States and the United Kingdom. The ubiquitous metaphor of the crisis has been an all-encompassing “financial storm,” but Clark argues that the data tracks the narrow path of a tornado—destroying some neighborhoods while leaving others largely untouched. In our vastly unequal societies, disproportionate suffering is being meted out to the poor—and the book’s new analysis suggests that the scars left by unemployment and poverty will linger long after the economy recovers. Politicians on both sides of the Atlantic have shown more interest in exploiting the divisions of opinion ushered in by the slump than in grappling with these problems. But this hard-hitting analysis provides a wake-up call that all should heed.

Hard Times by William Moskoff Summary

The precipitous decline of the Soviet population's standard of living in the last years of the USSR is one of the great ironies of the Gorbachev era. In Hard Times, economist William Moskoff takes a closer look at the objective and subjective experience of economic decline as it affected ordinary citizens. After an introductory survey of the Soviet economy during these years, Moskoff examines several key problems: the chronic shortages of food and consumer goods, so emblematic of Soviet life, and the hoarding, black marketeering, and corruption which scarcity fostered. Next he takes the measure of declining living standards in the late 1980s and early 1990s as reflected in prices and incomes, collapsing social programs, and rising indigency and homelessness. Employment, by contrast, shows a relatively small decline - a reflection of political rather than economic realities. In concluding chapters the population's response to the combined experience of political liberalization and economic distress is examined, with special attention to labor militancy and the radicalization of popular moods.

Ministry in Hard Times by Bill Easum,Bill Tenny-Brittian Summary

In hard times, you can either panic, decline, or grow. Which do you choose to do? This is not a time to tweak your church budget. It is not a time to slash and burn it indiscriminately across the board. Nor is it the time to hunker down in the bunker and wait things out. Now is the time is exercise wisdom and to act strategically. In fact, it's a great time to be the church. People need us to live out our mission as radically as we can possibly imagine. This book will help you make wise decisions about how to weather the economic storm and emerge on the other side of it a much stronger congregation. It’s a simple book with a simple message: you don’t get to choose when you go through hard times, only how you respond to them.

Hope in Hard Times by Mary Murphy Summary

Arthur Rothstein, Russell Lee, John Vachon, and Marion Post Wolcott became some of the United States' best-known photographers through their pictures of Depression-era America. Their assignment, as one of their associates described it, was to have "a long look at the whole vast, complicated rural U.S. landscape with all that was built on it and all those who built and wrecked and worked in it and bore kids and dragged them up and played games and paraded and picnicked and suffered and died and were buried in it." In Montana the four photographers traveled to forty of the state's fifty-six counties, creating a rich record of the many facets of the Depression and recovery: rural and urban, agricultural and industrial, work and play, hard times and the promise of a brighter future. The photographers captured the dignity of Montanans as they struggled to scratch out livings from dried-up fields, nurture families in the shadows of Butte head frames, and foster communities on the vast expanses of the northern plains. Hope in Hard Times, features over 140 Farm Security Administration photographs to illustrate the story of the Great Depression in Montana and the experiences of the photographers who documented it. Today these striking images, from cities like Butte to small towns like Terry, present an unforgettable portrait of a little-studied period in the history of Montana. Selected from the Farm Security Administration Collection at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., the photographs in Hope in Hard Times offer viewers an unparalleled look at life in Montana in the years preceding the United States' entry into World War II.

Hard Times by David C. Clark Summary

It is not widely known that Tatamagouche played an important role in the past history of Nova Scotia. Much of the heritage of our ancestors is fading in our collective memories as time passes. Perhaps the reader of this narrative may be intrigued enough to delve further to learn about the historical significance of the area. How many people nowadays know that almost three hundred majestic wooden sailing ships were built along the Tatamagouche waterfront, or that this was the location of the Acadian village that was the first site chosen for the horrible expulsion of those early settlers from the province? How many know of the existence of Fort Franklin, or of the British vs French and Mi’kmaq naval battle that took place in Tatamagouche Bay? Growing up in Tatamagouche in the 1940s and 1950s the author himself paid scant attention to such matters. Now he wishes that he had.
