ECON 202

08 Mar

Complete each of the three following questions within a single MS-Word file or rich text format document:  range 6 – 7 [Max] pages overall, double-spaced, and no references are necessary.  Number each of your essays separately and in order.

Analyze these topics from the basis of our course content by beginning with an underlined thesis statement (purpose) in the first paragraph.  Then use each paragraph to analyze a separate concept, theory, or principle from the text which helps explain the underlying economic content.  Critique in your own words how your topic conforms with the economic theories from the text.  No outside sources should be used, as the best grades will be for those papers which clearly develop their own analysis.


  1.   Select any two (2) of the Case Studies from the bottom of weekly Modules and in each paragraph compare common macro economic concepts / principles.   Analyze the outcomes in light of the course material which you have studied.    (~ 2 pages);


  1.   What do you consider to be the most difficult macro economic concept and how did you attempt to better understand?  Secondly, what appears to be the single greatest weakness / shortcoming in the macro economic approach & assumptions?   (~ 2 pages); and


  1.   How has this course changed your thinking about the economy & your view of policy making?  What new idea do you take away from this course with regard to the ability of policymakers to achieve their stated goals?   What is the main course outcome(s) for you through the reading to date?   (~ 2 pages)
