It created a "lost generation" of Architects and Landscape Architects. The profession lost about 5 years of professionals who went into other fields such as animation. They never returned, hence there is actually a gap in the field in upper management today ie. the 40-45 year olds.

Just looking for a link with some facts, thats all. My google searching skills are not on point today.

Thanks

No links just some memories about about the savings and loans going under. I don't recall unemployment being that severe nor that lengthy. There were enough pissed off people to vote for the Tea Party forerunner, Ross Perot, to give Bill Clinton the White House with less than 50% of the popular vote. At one time Perot threw his support to Clinton because he claimed Bush Sr. ruined his daughter's wedding.

It was one of 10 or 14 recessions in the past 80 years in the USA that started during Republican presidencies. The key causes arose from imbalances in the financial sector. There was a brief stock market crash in 1987. While the market recovered, there were lingering consequences. The years immediately prior to and during the recession corresponded to the S&L crisis -- a financial crisis amongst Savings and Loans banks centered in Texas and Louisiana but which had national scope. The S&L crisis arose due to risky loans made by those banks that were deregulated under President Reagan.

A crash in real estate assets occurred, concentrated most severely in the southwest. In the mid-1990s Texas and Oklahoma were only beginning to recover. National recovery was led by robust growth in California and the northeast.

There are actually interesting parallels between that recession and the current one. The biggest different is that the recent financial crisis was much, much more severe and global in scope, while the late 80s financial crisis was a more regional affair with more limited national impact. Consequently, extreme measures, involving huge stimulus and central bank intervention were not needed in 1990 or 1991. But, like most recessions caused by financial crises, the economy recovered very slowly, just as we are right now recovering very slowly.

This nugget has been brought to you by...the D.N.C.


"Credibility in immigration policy can be summed up in one sentence: Those who should get in, get in; those who should be kept out, are kept out; and those who should not be here will be required to leave."

"...for the system to be credible, people actually have to be deported at the end of the process."

US Congresswoman Barbara Jordan (D-TX)

Testimony to the House Immigration Subcommittee, February 24, 1995

Oh, please, peejay, do tell the real causes and effects of that recessions -- and do point out any facts in my post that are incorrect (you won't be able to -- so you resort to your not so witty repartee).

It was the pre death of several major defense companies. A lot of layoffs and mergers. You had Phds applying for entry level jobs by the thousands.

Yeah -- I got my first *real* job after my postdoc in 1989 -- and counted myself really lucky to be able to choose between offers at strong industrial firms.
