As part of this course you are asked to create a Family Economic History. A family economic history is a chronological discussion of economic decisions and choices made by one's forefathers that have in one way or other affected one's current economic circumstance or condition. You may also construct a family job tree to trace your family economic history, going back two or three generations. Your investigation must include a description of economic conditions of the times (e.g., war, migration, immigration, depression, prosperity) which you believe influenced the economic choices of your predecessors. You can view this activity as a biographical sketch that emphasizes economic decision making and its consequences. In presenting your family economic history, you need not reveal real names, but include sufficient factual details and circumstances. Your work will be evaluated based on your demonstrated understanding of relevant economic concepts and of how socioeconomic factors influence decision making.
