The Crash of 2008: Cause and Aftermath

Hello visitors. Over the course of the last few weeks we have been asked by many of you for ideas and resources on how and what to teach about the current economic "difficulties." One great resource can be found right here. After reading the paper you will see that the authors have done a very thorough job explaining many of the intricate details of the "Crash of 2008". Along with the reading comes a wonderful classroom-ready PowerPoint presentation that can be found right here. These materials should help you answer the "Are we going to have another Great Depression?" question I'm sure many of your students are asking lately.
