Nevada’s Great Recession, Looking back, Moving Forward by Elliott Parker with Kate Marshall
With Foreword by Senator Harry Reid
Of all economic recessions experienced by the United States in the postwar period, the Great Recession that began in 2008 was the deepest, longest, and most destructive. Nevada was among the hardest hit states, its people reeling from the aftereffects, and the state government also experiencing a severe fiscal crisis. University of Nevada economics professor Elliott Parker and then State Treasurer Kate Marshall make sense of what wrong and why, with the hope the state will learn lessons to prevent past mistakes from begin made again.
