2. Please compare the nominal and real GDP trends from 1929 to 2008, i.e. plot both nominal and real GDP (the vertical axis) against year (the horizontal axis).

3. Please compare the nominal and real GDP growth rates from 1930 to 2008, i.e. plot both nominal and real GDP (the vertical axis) growth rates against year (the horizontal axis).
