Option 1: A comparison of the Great Depression and the Subprime Crisis
Use the FRED database to compare the Great Depression to the Subprime Crisis in the United States. You may choose the specific variables to compare, but a meaningful comparison should include:
- The decline in GDP and GDP growth (real)
Government deficits (as a share of GDP).
The text should highlight important changes in the variables and it should tell a coherent story.
