Question 10. Since Black Monday on October 28, 1929, the United States has gone through a number of economic contractions, as defined by the National Bureau of Economic Research. Name one of them by name or a month and year when we were in contraction.

I'm pretty much accusing you all of googling after last time. Be prepared.

I'm going through all the answers. This one will take a few minutes to tabulate. So far, only three people have given a wrong answer, because they assumed the stock market crash of 1987 lead to an overall economic contraction. That's impossible. Reagan was in full power! He could do no wrong!

If JasonF is busy you could get Pharoh or orangecrush, since they seem to be the same person.
