With too much food, and not enough money, the government had decided that it would be OK if the Romans paid ½ of their taxes in money and the other ½ in food. This actually helped because not as many people went to jail for not paying their taxes, and it also created a lot of food storage for the colder seasons when they couldn't grow as many crops. Supporting the economic system isn't just based on farming and trading. Jobs, and money also tie into supporting the economic system.

These fancy clothes were a symbol of wealth because only the rich could afford to have these clothes custom made for them. Lower or middle class people often had their own family members making clothes for them because they could not afford to have a tailor. Most clothes made by lower to middle class people were only made of “one or two pieces of cloth” (Source 2. 4) in order to conserve cloth for other clothing.

The New Deal did successfully decrease unemployment from thirteen million to eight million but it did not stop it.

The first example is the Pickett family. The author explains how hard they try to make ends meet and how they faced money problems and they saw their credit cards as a way to buy the daily necessities and pay bills, but no matter how hard they try their debt just increased. According to Elizabeth Warren “families in financial trouble are working hard, playing by the rules- and the game is stacked against them.” No matter how hard families in financial trouble try to get out of debt they simply can’t because banks and financial institution have it set up so that it make it nearly impossible for them to get out of debt.
