In 1932 Franklin D. Roosevelt won the presidency in a landslide victory over Herbert Hoover (President at that time). He implemented many ideas to get the nation out of the depression. He based his ideas off of three principles; relief, recovery, and reform. Roosevelt’s “New Deal” was tremendously successful as it improved the nation’s economy and lowered the enormously high unemployment rate.

In 1937 Otto Eisenschiml's Why Was Lincoln Murdered was published. The book espoused the hypothesis that Secretary of War Edwin Stanton was directly involved in Lincoln's death. It alleged that Stanton was against Lincoln's mild Reconstruction policies and wanted him out of office so a more radical Reconstructionist policy could be employed. On the day of the assassination Ulysses S. Grant was expected to attend Our American Cousin with the Lincolns. Eisenschiml argued that had Grant attended, the military guards who protected him would never have allowed Booth to enter the State Box at Ford's Theatre.
All hazards, whether natural, technological or war hazards, are able to cause loss of life, property damage, and various secondary effects1. Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans in 2005, is a recent natural disaster that will be remembered by many as one of the most deadly hurricanes in history6. The sinking of the RMS Titanic, in April 1912, which many believe to have been caused by a collision with an iceberg, was in fact caused by its poor technology3, making it one of the most memorable historical technological disasters to have ever occurred. While these two disasters may seem unsurpassed, they will be analyzed and compared, in order to determine possible similarities and differences that relate to the disasters’ elements of risk. (i) Description of Disasters: Hurricane Katrina is said to have been the most costly and deadliest hurricanes in U.S history, resulting in $81.2 billion dollars in damage and 1836 casualties6.
ECO/372 Learning Team Aggregate Demand and Supply Models The Keynesian economists would look at the current proposal of increasing taxes as a governmental expression of the intermediate approach to the economy. The government taking control and having the people pay the price for their higher tax bracket. These funds would be used to decrease the amount of money owed by the United States.

These policies include a higher protective tariff and lower taxes. When Harding arrived in the white house, the nation was in the midst of a post-wartime recession as a result of the decrease in production of wartime materials. The Harding administration successfully stimulated the economy with local public works projects and business shared work programs. This recovery evolved into the economic boom and the innovation of the early 1920s that gave the era the nickname the “Roaring twenties.” The mind behind the Warren administration’s success was in fact the secretary of the treasury, Andrew Mellon. Mellon was a multi-millionaire from Pittsburgh who had a lot of experience with economics.
Reaganomics In the 1980’s, the ideas of supply-side economics quickly went from a campaign slogan to an actual economic policy. Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign was largely geared toward this theory. Supply-side economics were based upon the ideas that lower taxes would increase spending by consumers and also by producers for capital. Consequently, this tax cut would also increase tax revenues. The theory behind this was that if taxes were increased or left at their same rate, the amount of money brought into the government would be x.
After the war, he took a law degree at Kansas City and after this he moved into the social and political circles of the Democrat Party. Truman was a county court judge for eight years until 1935, when aged 41 he was elected as a Senator. In World War Two, Truman had the responsibility of keeping a check on war time spending. In 1944, he was selected by F D Roosevelt to be his running mate for the 1944 election campaign. Roosevelt won this election and Truman moved from being a Senator to becoming Vice-President of the United States.
Running Head: REAGAN-SIDE ECONOMICS Reagan-Side Economics Ebony Stanley Park University Running Head: REAGAN-SIDE ECONOMICS Reagan-Side Economics During his administration, President Ronald Reagan implemented supply-side economics. Believing that the current tax rates were too high and were detrimental to “individual initiative and saving” by Americans, Reagan’s administration felt that supply-side economic policy would be beneficial (Gordon 2009). The thought process of supply side economics rests in the effect of lowering income tax rates. Those who embraced this economic policy theorized that lowering the tax rate would increase the amount of work and saving by the American people. They went on to further say that the increase
