If I had the ability to add another event that possesses historical significance it would also be from the 21st century. The Great Recession of 2008 is the event that I would pick as the ninth historical event.

The Great Recession of 2008 was a worldwide economic downturn that impacted the global economy. Economists consider the economic decline as one of the most damaging recessions that occurred since the Great Depression of 1930’s.

The “Great Depression” and the “Great Recession” are two of the darkest times in American history. There is much debate about the cause of the Great Depression and how it differed from the cause of the Great Recession. Many people believe that the stock market crash of 1929 played a major role the Great Depression. On the other hand, the stock market crash of 2008 drove America into the Great Recession.

The Great Recession, coinciding with the subprime mortgage crisis, lasted from the end of 2007 to the middle of 2009.

In the midst of the current economic downturn, dubbed the “Great Recession”, it is natural to look for one, singular entity or person to blame. Managers of large banks, professional investors and federal regulators have all been named as potential creators of the recession, with varying degrees of guilt.

. The Great Depression was a period of unprecedented decline in economic activity. It is generally agreed to have occurred between 1929 and 1939.
