2008 Financial Crisis

Single crisis committee

Welcome to the Obama administration! The year is 2009 and the nation has just inaugurated its first African American president in Barack Obama. You, as a member of Congress or the newly appointed Cabinet, are heading back to work in the 110th session. However not everything is looking rosy at the moment. The country has begun to enter what seems to be an economic recession, with housing prices falling, the mortgage market has begun to collapse. It remains unclear at the moment just how much worse things might get. You must deal with these developing economic crises before things get out of hand, all while continuing to tend to the normal functions of US governance. Let’s get working on that budget!
