ECON 210 research paper topic

Review the research paper instructions carefully and then submit a summary of your chosen microeconomic topic and proposed outline of your idea for your paper.

RESEARCH PAPER INSTRUCTIONS:

Your topic summary and proposed outline of your idea for the paper is due in Module 3, a draft of the paper is due in Module 6, and the final paper is due in Module 9. Here is a checklist that you may find helpful.

 The objective of the assignment is to demonstrate the application of microeconomic theory as presented in Arnold to a current topic you have chosen. It is the application of the theory that is important; this is not just a research paper which describes a current situation with some economic features.

 The selected topic must be one that relates to microeconomics; that is, any of the subjects listed in the Arnold table of contents under microeconomics, for example, market failure. Macroeconomic topics and analysis are not acceptable for a micro class.

 The paper should not be long. Provide enough information and detail on your chosen topic to serve as the basis for economic analysis. The topic must be relatively current; an analysis of some past event is not acceptable.

 Show how the theory you’ve learned from the course and presented in Arnold applies to or explains the current situation. The analysis need not be complex, but must include a written explanation and a graphical analysis similar to those used throughout Arnold. Basically, you are just selecting the appropriate tools from Arnold and showing how they apply to a specific situation.

 Write a short conclusion. This might include some predictions for the future.

The paper should include the following:

 Title page  Insert page numbers. A Running Head is fine but not necessary.  Abstract – not required but OK if desired  Table of Contents – not required  Section Headings – strongly encouraged  Citations – cite all references in the body of the text and in the Reference list.  Plagiarism – Do not copy text from another author or Web source unless it is quoted.  Appendices – Not necessary but may be appropriate for raw data.
