The Baker Library Historical Collections at Harvard Business School has just curated a free exhibition on the history of personal credit, titled Buy Now, Pay Later. In light of current economic issues, in particular the problem that many Americans live well beyond their means via credit, this exhibition couldn’t have come at a better time.
