Assignment 1: Economic Policies and Practices

The federal government employs a budget plan over several fiscal years that results in significant increases in the national debt, with no relief or plans to deal with the problem.
The federal government enacts new tariffs and quotas on all imports.
The general public loses confidence in their leadership, in terms of their ability to manage the economy, especially in the area of job creation.
The federal government, in an effort to stimulate the economy, decreases taxes on all individuals except those earning over $250,000 per year.
The level of investment decreases because of a lack of confidence in the economy.
Interest rates are kept artificially low by the Federal Reserve for several years.
