Stimulus Spending in Historical Context

Today’s episode of CNN Student News contains two segments about US stimulus spending. The first segment outlines the intent of the stimulus spending and it’s potential impact on middle class students. The second segment puts the stimulus spending into a historical context by comparing it to past spending for projects like the New Deal and the Marshall Plan.

Applications for Education
These segments could be useful for history teachers that are trying to help students make the connection between past US spending practices and current spending practices.
