March 2009 Issue: Global Economic Outlook
Foreword: We've gone through the world, so I just moved down the list of last year's NFL national tournament round topics. I picked the topic that everyone wants to hear about right now anyway: the world economy. Unfortunately, the economy is sagging. This means a lot of economics speeches will look the same. The key to differentiating yourself in these rounds is how well you can explain it. Understanding the theory is imperative. So this month, I took a more theoretical approach. First, we will examine the tools governments have to handle recessions. Second, we have to understand the credit crunch that caused the global slowdown. Third, we'll take a look at the theories of Thomas Malthus and the economics of Africa. Finally, we need to study the rise of the Chinese model in the international community.
