Select at least two articles that discuss the economic concept that you chose as a topic for

your term paper.

At least one article should be dated within the previous year.

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

discussed in the Term paper.

2. Introduction (0.25 of a page) (optional)

3. Literature Review (about 1 page) – 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

accordance with the 7th Edition APA Style.

4. Discussion (about 1 page) – 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.

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.
