Economy Policies

Choose an economic period in the United States within the past 100 years (this could be any period of time that you choose). Create a PowerPoint presentation (10-12 slides, not including title and reference slide) that addresses the following:

1. Catalogue what was happening in the economy during your chosen period.

2. Explain what actions the government took in reaction to the state of the economy during this period.

3. Explain if budget deficits and divisiveness in government increased or decreased during this period? Explain why.

4. Describe what, if any, fiscal policies came out of this period. Why were those fiscal policies enacted?

Use pictures, graphics, graphs, quotes, etc. to represent your findings. As well as three to five scholarly sources.

Include speaker notes below each content-related slide that represent what would be said if giving the presentation in person. Expand upon the information included in the slide and do not simply restate it. Please ensure the speaker notes include 50-75 words per slide.

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, including an APA formatted reference slide, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
