They will look at changes brought about by New Deal government regulations and the development and implementation of new technologies. Students will complete a cause-effect graphic that highlights the economic relationships of supply, demand, and profit. The lesson begins on page 28 of the pdf Texas Economics - Eras and Individuals.
