What are economic depressions, and what causes them? Through this book, students will gain a general understanding of economic cycles and how depressions are not part of the normal ebb and flow. They will learn about what triggers these extreme economic downturns and how countries try to recover from them through the real-world example of the Great Depression. Readers will explore twenty-first century recessions in the United States, Greece, and Argentina, and learn how these crises did not become depressions.
