include unemployment statistics details about wealth inequality and a discussion of the relationship between energy and the economy at some point in the essay Be sure to include a description of how the economy was doing in general terms when you talk about each decade So we need to make sure we talk about each decade one intervention per decade at a minimum more is OFTEN better and include

spur government action Cuyahoga Rachel Carson etc 1980s You could talk about Reaganomics and how Reagan s policies were meant to address the problem of stagflation that emerged in the 1970s and general economic recession DO NOT FORGET TO ASSESS THE EFFECTIVENESS OF GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION It has been a blessing and a pleasure to spend my last semester at UA with all of you wish you all the
