There are two ways of problem-solving commonly seen in psychological studies; Heuristics and Algorithms. What is the difference between these two concepts, give examples to support your answer.
An algorithm is a systematic way of reaching a solution, it is often numeric and almost guarantees the correct solution. It usually takes a longer period of time than a Heuristic would. A heuristic is commonly seen as a shortcut or rule of thumb used to reach a solution. A heuristic is not always correct, but it is much faster than an algorithm. When looking for a certain type of cereal in the grocery store there are multiple ways to go about finding it. An algorithm would be searching every aisle and every product until you found what you needed while a heuristic would be using the aisle guides to reach the cereal section faster, however, the cereal may not be in that section whereas with an algorithm you are guaranteed to eventually find it.
The great depression took place between the two world wars, do you believe that the economic downfall seen during this time can be attributed to times of war? if so, why?
I believe that the stock market thrives when companies are not under the pressure of war. In war times, companies taxes may raise and they may see a loss of employees as the draft takes precedence. Under war conditions, individuals also shift their focus from their work to their well-being, causing a decrease in work proficiency by a companies employees. Even at a microeconomic level, war effects the economy, possibly to the point of an economic depression as large as the stock market crash of the 1930's.
