Think carefully about the issue presented in the following excerpt and the assignment below.
Studies of creativity often focus primarily on writers, artists, composers, and scientists. Political leaders are not usually considered to be very creative. Indeed, it is sometimes said that it is a good thing that leaders in general are not very creative, since an excess of creativity, especially in leaders who have to enforce rules, would only lead to trouble. Yet surely some degree of creativity is desirable in all walks of life.

In turn, consumers began to curb(紧缩) their spending, refraining(节制) from purchasing such things as luxury goods. This lack of consumer spending caused additional businesses to cut back wages or, more drastically, to lay off(解雇) some of their workers. Some businesses couldn't stay open even with these cuts and soon closed their doors, leaving all their workers unemployed.
4) The New Deal is the revolution to allowing traditional and unrestrained(放纵的) freedom.
