For this assignment, you are to read the Case Study titled “The International Gold Standard and the Great Depression” located on pages 517-518. As you read the Case Study, critically think on how this topic ties into the overall view of International Economics and the three objectives related to this unit. I have attached the case below and the link above is the actual text book in pdf.

Once you finish reading the Case Study, you are to answer the following questions:

1. What kinds of “economic policy mistakes” did the U.S. make in late 1920s that may have resulted in the

Great Depression?

2. What role did you think the gold standard played in exacerbating the Great Depression?

3. What approaches do you think some countries had to make to safeguard their gold reserves?

4. How did abandoning the gold standard early help some countries in stabilizing their economies?

Your paper should be a minimum of two pages and be formatted according to APA standards. At least 3 to 4 Pages.

This need to be substantial!
