1 Intro Macro N. Sheflin Extra Credit Per the syllabus, the extra credit is worth up to 10 points. Do it if you are interested, have the time, and want some extra work. It can (but may not) help your grade, particularly if you are on the edge of a higher grade.It can also be interesting, educational, fun and something for me to write about in a future recommendation. Do any ONE of the following that appeals to you. Write your report as though addressing a clever friend who knows little economics, and use graphical or algebraic analysis as appropriate. Your work should be submitted via the ASSIGNMENTS Tab in SAKAI before the last class of the semester (directions later). Feel free to see me for help. Note that I have a file of extra credit worked submitted in the past ans will check all new submissions against this. I will also check with other anti-cheating resources. TO GET ANY CREDIT, YOU MUST : INCLUDE and answer THE QUESTIONS I provided (copy and paste any of the following into your report) Answer the questions in your own words NOT quote from the book/article ANALYZE the material - you will be graded on your analysis, not your ability to summarize the source. RELATE the reading to what we are studying in this course. NOT write a book reports – ANSWER THE QUESTIONS NOT USE OTHERS WORK OR WORDS WITHOUT CITING THEM. Submit a 4-8 ‘typed’, double-spaced document. 1. Read about the Great Depression and the current recession (we hope) in: Randall Parker’s “An Overview of the Great Depression” http://eh.net/encyclopedia/article/parker.depression and Christina Romer’s “Lessons for the Great Depression for Economic Recovery in 2009” www. brookings .edu/~/media/Files/events/2009/0309_lessons/0309_lessons_ romer .pdf and her “The Great Crash and the Onset of the Great Depression” www.econ.berkeley.edu/~c romer /great_depression.pdf a. What appear to be the most plausible causes of the depression?

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
