There are two economic based questions below and I expect economic based answers. I realize there were political aspects and wrangling over these topics but I want discussions focused on economic factors. Essays and responses are not to include definitions, historical perspectives, talking points, or personal attacks. References to individual must include a title where applicable, i.e., President Clinton, not Bill Clinton; Vice President Gore, not Al Gore.

Essays should be sufficient in length to fully address the discussion question. Discussion posts are to be economically sound, grammatically correct, proofread, and logical; no Instant Message text. Use of the textbook, Encyclopedia, Wikipedia, Econopedia, or similar …pedia’s as a reference in any cited work results in an automatic two-grade level deduction.
