Today some of the class had gone on a trip of biology, so we were almost the half of the class more or less. We have started with Paqui who has explained on a power point the crisis, at first she has shown a slide about prosperity and consumer society another about the other face of prosperity in which Paqui has said that everyone could have what they wanted because everything was paid by installment, after this we have seen a slide in which it was Charles Chaplin with his character Charlot and he represented a tramp, after this one we have seen another of the prohibition of the alcohol from 1919 to 1933 it was prohibited to produce, sell or consume alcoholic drinks.
During this prohibition of alcohol the mafia of the USA made speakeasy which were ilegal bars, Al Capone was an important ganster of this period, I asked Paqui of how he was arrested and she told me that he was detenied for his tax evasion not his ilegal activities.
Another slide was about Ku Klux Klan, which was a racist organization who hounded other races people, especially black people.
Then Paqui has put another power point about a scheme of the origin of the crisis in which were the expressions: Financial bubble which in spanish is burbuja financiera and real estate bubble which in spanish is burbuja inmobiliaria and afther this Paqui has said that football pools is la quiniela in spanish.
Paqui has explained the crisis with people from the class: Dani, Ana Isabel, Bea Antequera, Andrea and Angel were the chosen ones.
After this we have participated in a fire drill and then we have finished of copying the first scheme and Paqui has send the second for homework and exercises 4 and 5 from this unit too. Today was a moving day. Here you can see the schemes:
