Plot separately data (1970 onwards) for fiscal spending on capital

a)     Please plot historical annual data on deficit to GDP ratios (1970 to today); and on national debt to GDP.  Comment on the results.  Compare to periods of recession in Canada.

This is rather straight forward. I don’t really care what the deficit is in nominal terms.  A $10billion dollar deficits today is less today in RELATIVE terms to GDP than even a decade ago because the economy growths.  So plot deficit to GDP and debt to GDP ratios.  Then look at what happens to them during recessions.
