Undergraduate Research Assistant Opportunity Banks, Financial Markets, and the Federal Reserve During the Great Depression Description of Project During the Great Depression of 1929 to 1939, one third of the banks in the United States suspended operations. The banks failed during three gigantic panics. Economists and historians have long wondered why these panics occurred and how they affected the economy. This project seeks to answer those questions. The focus of the project is a large set of data that gathered from the National Archives of the United States. We are computerizing and analyzing that data. We hope to understand the origins and consequences of the bank panics during the Great Depression and to design policies that will prevent similar catastrophes from occurring in the future. Description of Tasks Student volunteer assistants will work on all stages of the research project: entering data, analyzing evidence, presenting results, applying for funds (used to pay you), and writing papers.
