Game of Theories: Business Cycles

Booms and busts are coming. 

And they've occurred many times before (Great Recession, anyone?). 

But what causes them? And how should we respond to them? 

Ask a room of economists, and you'll likely get many different answers. With this series, you'll get a quick overview of the four main business cycle theories and see how they might apply to the Great Recession.
