The Great Depression and the Great Recession
An 11 minute video with a questionable ad at the beginning. Great photos and an excellent lesson that can be used in history, economics, and other social studies assignments. It even explores how to find data to make the case for the reason it was called a Great Depression. A good compare and contrast lesson, too.

1.8 Conflict and tension

The management of a site such as Aberdulais Falls by its very nature highlights conflicting interests and tensions. Some relate to problems caused by the decision-making process itself, which can be slow and has to accommodate a range of interests of the various client bodies.

2.3 Other influences on market demand

What about other variables which may affect demand? Let us consider four such variables. As is often the case in economics, the first two points involve understanding some rather formal relationships between variables, in this case price and income.
