    IMO, it's going to be quite a task without reading the article or, at least, a summary of it.

    Given the sentence you wrote which I have now marked in red above, I would say that #4 is the closest because at least it mentions the economy. However, the sentence in red doesn't mention a crisis so #4 might not be completely appropriate. The sentence in red also doesn't mention the 1930s so I can't tell if that's appropriate.

    I find #1 very unnatural.
    #2 mentions the slave trade, not economic factors.
    #3 talks about 1850 to 1913, but #4 says it's about the 1930s.
    #5 talks about after World War II which would be 1945 onwards.

    Are you sure you actually know what the content of your essay is? I'm assuming this is meant to be an essay/thesis title.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
