This assignment will ask students to go to YouTube and watch the Crash Course U.S. Government and Politics video: Government Regulation. This video will provide students with an insight into how the government is involved in regulating the economy of the United States. The four main goals of the governments economic policy are reviewed: promoting stable markets, promoting economic prosperity, promoting business development, and protecting consumers and employees. Modern and historical examples for each of these goals are reviewed, as are the bureaucratic agencies that are involved with each. The second half of the video deals with how the U.S. government has changed throughout history from having a hands off approach when it came to the economy, to a modern administrative and regulatory state. The advent of the railroads, the Gilded Age, the Great Depression and New Deal, and modern regulations are all reviewed.

Students love the independence of this assignment by getting to use laptops, Chromebooks, or even their own cellphones to watch the video. Crash Course videos tend to move fast so students often find success if they watch the video through once before going back to pause/play to find the answers to all of the questions.
