Term Paper

I don’t know how to handle this Economics question and need guidance.

Select at

least three

news

articles that discuss the economic concept that you chose as a topic for

your term paper.

At least one

news

article should be dated

within the previous two months

.

Please note that the goal of this assignment is to read, understand, and discuss recent news

using microeconomic terminology. The articles should be from an on-line newspaper or

magazine. Materials posted on educational websites, like

www.thebalance.com,

www.khanacademy.org

, and so on, are not considered news articles even if they were

recently updated and contain material related to the term paper topic.

The Term paper should have the following structure:

1.

Abstract

(0.5 of a page) – the short description of the concepts, problems, questions

discussed in the Term paper.

2.

Introduction

(0.5 of a page) (optional)

3.

Literature Review

(about 2 pages) – please compare and contrast the opinions of the

authors of the articles, present the important information, data, statistics to support your

conclusions. It is important that the Literature review is written in your own words with

small quotes from the article. All quotes must have references in APA format.

4.

Discussion

(about 2 pages) –

Your task for this part of the Term paper is to analyze the

issue described in the articles using the economic concepts and theory learned in this

class.

Refer to the course content materials and use specific economic vocabulary within

your term paper.

The articles you choose may not use these exact terms; therefore, it is

incumbent upon you to convert the article language into economic language as is

appropriate.

Include at least one graph developed in our course.

5.

Conclusion

(0.5 of a page)

The Term paper should be the title page and sub-titles that correspond to the

structure described above.

Please note the Term paper should be written

in your own words.

You can use short quotes from

the article(s) to support your statements. However the size of these quotes should be reduced to

minimum.

No more than 20% of the text of the term paper should be made up of quotes.

(less is better!!!)

.

Please also avoid copying the materials from any textbooks, including our textbook.

Please

b

e aware that Wikipedia, Investopedia, and other on-line dictionaries and encyclopedias

are not verifiable sources of reliable information, and should not be used in the Term paper.

Acceptable sources of the information are: research papers, newspaper articles, and books.
