The United States Economy

This multimedia case considers the development of the U.S. Economy up until 2005, detailing its achievements and shortfalls. It charts the history of the country and attempts to simulate the power of the nation on the rest of the world. The case is separated into three main areas: an in-depth country analysis detailing key economic indicators and their progress, an interactive timeline charting the history of the U.S, and a simulator which aids in the discussion of the effects of the U.S. economy on the rest of the world.
