1. Macroeconomics: Composition

Try to read an article perhaps from sources that are linked to EconExpress - a website established to direct students to economics oriented articles. (Admittedly, there are few odd periodicals, but a substantial number of links are associated with news and magazines that publish the types of articles that are appropriate for college students of economics.) If you cannot find appropriate articles at EconExpress, then you are welcome to do your own search. The articles should have been recently published.  You may not use an article or topic that has already been analyzed and posted by another student.

Write your composition, analyzing the news via the recent principles of economics you have learned. You should write in a word processor, then copy and paste your writing as a post in Canvas for News Analysis A or News Analysis B.  Copy and paste, do not attach documents.

 

The required written format of your news analysis is highly structured.

 

250 words minimum must be written in the required format demonstrating the principles of the course.

 

The first line of your composition - type the topic of the news you are analyzing - do not use the headline from the researched article.

 

On the next line, put the name of the news source and the web address (url) where the article can be found. (The url must be specific enough so that other students could go to the very place and read the same article that you read.)

 

The first paragraph should contain one or two sentences summarizing in your own words what you read. (You may not use phrases, sentences or quotes of any kind from the source article in the first two sentences or any sentences in your composition.)

 

The next paragraphs should explain in your own words how the article connects to what you have been learning. You need to connect to the most recent principles that you have learned from the section of the course most recently completed. REQUIRED:  You must use  terms/principles from that section of the course.  Please type the terms in bold (or use CAPS) as seen in the example.
