Topic summary and proposed outline of idea due in Module 3 (10 points)? Draft of the paper due in Module 6 (30 points)? Final paper due in Module 9 (60 points)During the course, you are required to complete a formal written assignment highlightingpublished current economic events or issues and explain how they relate to theories learned inthis course. The paper provides you an opportunity to realize, reflect, and explain theeconomics that exist all around us. The paper must include a graph used as an explanatory toolof the economic principle presented.Early submissions of written assignments are always accepted, but use the links provided in therespective modules to submit your topic, draft, and final paper. Make use of the feedback youreceive on your draft paper to improve your final paper before submitting it in Module 9.Instructions for preparing this assignment are as follows:1. Each paper is to be an analysis on the recent economic events or economic reports fromthe supplemental resources or references. The focus of this assignment is to relate andanalyze current events to basic principles of microeconomics covered in this course. Itis not acceptable to just regurgitate statistics. The paper should indicate that you have aclear understanding of theory learned in class and its application/operation in the?outside world.?2. Option - If you come upon an interesting subject relating to your work or any other noneconomicpublication that can be explained in light of the theories learned in this class,you may be able to substitute this as the basis article. Discuss the article and ideas withyour Instructor prior to embarking on this option.3. Use standard file format (.doc or.docx) for all deliverables (topic, draft, and final paper).Standard margins apply. Papers should contain proper documentation of the article(s)or other references used. If direct quotes are used (not contained in the article),appropriate footnotes, endnotes, or parenthetical citations must accompany the quotes.Since a part of your paper will come from published sources, Internet references, etc.,there should be sufficient evidence of where the information for your paper originated.Paper length should be a few pages - short enough to qualify as a commentary but longenough to adequately address the subject. Typically, six to eight double spaced pagesare sufficient. Papers are graded on quality of content, not quantity. Standard APA stylerules apply and clarity is important to your grade.4. Paper grade will be broken down by the following standards:Page 2 of 2.Content 50%: reflection, explanation, implications of economic theory in practice,Organization 20%: References, Bibliography, Works Cited, etc.,Grammar and Spelling 10%: If you use Microsoft Word which has a spelling andgrammar tool, it should be difficult to misspell a word, use the incorrect word, orincorrectly use the written English language. (This is even rarer if you reread yourassignment before submitting.),Readability 10%: ease and flow of ideas of your presentation, andFormat 10%: APA format applies.

The submission of what is essentially the same paper inmore than one class without any indication that the paper has been published elsewhere (i.e.,redundant and duplicate publication) and the practice of text recycling is considered plagiarism.(APA guide, 6th edition, principle 6.02, page 170.)ECON 210 Research Paper ChecklistYour topic summary and proposed outline of your idea for the paper is due in Module 3, a draft of the paper isdue in Module 6, and the final paper is due in Module 9. Here is a checklist that you may find helpful.x The objective of the assignment is to demonstrate the application of microeconomic theory aspresented in Arnold to a current topic you have chosen. It is the application of the theory that isimportant, this is not just a research paper which describes a current situation with some economicfeatures.x The selected topic must be one that relates to microeconomics, that is, any of the subjects listed in theArnold table of contents under microeconomics, for example, market failure. Macroeconomic topicsand analysis are not acceptable for a micro class.x The paper should not be long. Provide enough information and detail on your chosen topic to serve asthe basis for economic analysis. The topic must be relatively current, an analysis of some past event isnot acceptable.x Show how the theory you?ve learned from the course and presented in Arnold applies to or explains thecurrent situation. The analysis need not be complex, but must include a written explanation and agraphical analysis similar to those used throughout Arnold. Basically, you are just selecting theappropriate tools from Arnold and showing how they apply to a specific situation.x Write a short conclusion. This might include some predictions for the future.The paper should include the following:x Title pagex Insert page numbers. A Running Head is fine but not necessary.x Abstract ? not required but OK if desiredx Table of Contents ? not requiredx Section Headings ? strongly encouragedx Citations ? cite all references in the body of the text and in the Reference list.x Plagiarism ?
