Request Description

The financial crisis of 2008 has caused macroeconomists to rethink monetary and fiscal policies. Economists, financial experts, and government policy makers are victims of what former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan called a “once in a century credit tsunami”—in other words, nobody saw it coming.
Based on the analysis of the data, share your thoughts on what caused the financial crisis and whether the United States is going in the right or wrong direction with its current policies.
Focus specifically on the following:
Monetary policy
What monetary policies do you think caused the crisis?
What were the effects of the policies implemented in reaction to the crisis?
Do you think the solutions worked in the short term? In the long term?
Fiscal policies
What fiscal policies do you think caused the crisis?
What were the effects of the fiscal policies implemented in reaction to the crisis?
Do you think the solutions worked in the short term? In the long term?
Make sure you include the following concepts in your analysis:
Interest rates
The financial services industries (CDOs, CMOs, the stock market, credit flows, money markets, etc.)
Tax rebates
Stimulus
TARP
Government debt and deficit
Inflation
Unemployment
GDP
