Essay on Historical Analysis of US Growth

Prior to the American economy’s recovery from the early-1980s recession, the poverty rate was very closely correlated with the country’s overall economic growth.

Legend of Bigfoot

A  cryptid ape- or hominid-like creature that reputedly lives in dense forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America is commonly known as  Bigfoot.
