Abstract

This thesis will explore the relationship between political ideology at the Framing and how those mentalities transcended time to effect modern economic policies and cause the Housing Bubble of the 2000s and subsequent Financial Crisis. This will be done by first establishing property rights at the Founding of the nation, narrating government intervention throughout American history, and explaining the very government intervention which occurred that caused the Great Recession. Finally, this thesis makes recommendations to revisit the qualification of the American Dream.
