Extractions: Depression December 2001 WHAT IS DEPRESSION? Everyone experiences some unhappiness, often as a result of a change, either in the form of a setback or a loss, or simply, as Freud said, "everyday misery." The painful feelings that accompany these events are usually appropriate, necessary, and transitory, and can even present an opportunity for personal growth. However, when depression persists and impairs daily life, it may be an indication of a depressive disorder. Severity, duration, and the presence of other symptoms are the factors that distinguish normal sadness from a depressive disorder. Depression has been alluded to by a variety of names in both medical and popular literature for thousands of years. Early English texts refer to "melancholia," which was for centuries the generic term for all emotional disorders. Depression is now referred to as a mood disorder, and the primary subtypes are major depression, dysthymia (chronic and usually milder depression), and atypical depression. Other important forms of depression are premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PDD, also called PMDD) and seasonal affective disorder (SAD).

Sliding Into The Great Depression A study of the economics of the Great depression by J. Bradford De Long ofUniversity of California at Berkeley. http://econ161.berkeley.edu/TCEH/Slouch_Crash14.html
Extractions: The Great Depression in Outline It is straightforward to narrate the slide of the world into the Great Depression. The 1920's saw a stock market boom in the U.S. as the result of general optimism: businessmen and economists believed that the newly-born Federal Reserve would stabilize the economy, and that the pace of technological progress guaranteed rapidly rising living standards and expanding markets. The U.S. Federal Reserve's attempts in 1928 and 1929 to raise interest rates to discourage stock speculation brought on an initial recession. Caught by surprise, firms cut back their own plans for further purchase of producer durable goods; firms making producer durables cut back production; out-of-work consumers and those who feared they might soon be out of work cut back purchases of consumer durables, and firms making consumer durables faced falling demand as well. Falls in pricesdeflationduring the Depression set in motion contractions in production which riggered additional falls in prices. With prices falling at ten percent per year, investors could calculate that they would earn less profit investing now than delaying investment until next year when their dollars would stretch ten percent further. Banking panics and the collapse of the world monetary system cast doubt on everyone's credit, and reinforced the belief that now was a time to watch and wait. The slide into the Depression, with increasing unemployment, falling production, and falling prices, continued throughout Herbert Hoover's Presidential term.

Extractions: Home Depression The term "depression" is often used to describe a very normal emotion that passes quickly. Everyone feels "down," "blue," or sad occasionally. But major depression is a "whole-body" illness, affecting the way a person eats, sleeps, and feels about one's self. It is not a passing sad mood. People with major depression often feel sad, helpless, hopeless, and irritable. Although it is perfectly normal to experience these feelings occasionally, people suffering from clinical depression cannot simply "snap out of it." It is the persistence and severity of these emotions that distinguishes clinical depression from normal mood changes. The term "clinical depression" means the depression is severe enough to require treatment. Types of clinical depression include major depression, dysthymia (persistant mild depression), bipolar disorder, and seasonal affective disorder. Depression usually begins in adolescence or early adulthood. It is often not recognized, and thus people who have it may suffer for years without proper diagnosis or treatment. People with depression often suffer from the following symptoms: noticeable change of appetite; significant weight loss or gain
