Question Description

WRITING ASSIGNMENT 2

Length: The assignment should be two to three pages, excluding title page and reference page

Important: You will focus on the four questions asked, in addition to the introduction and conclusion, as they relate to one or more topics covered throughout the last five weeks.

Focus: For this assignment, you are to apply the macroeconomic concepts to current and personal economic events and decisions using elements of the course materials covered during the last five weeks of this course.

Please read the assignment thoroughly as it contains the materials needed for you to properly address the issues raised by the questions of this writing assignment.

You should choose other articles you may find through your research on this assignment and use the Strayer Writing Standards for integration of sources and references as it is academically unacceptable to write a scholarly paper with no sources in the text.

When writing the paper, focus on the questions asked as these questions are meant to assess your understanding of the materials covered in our course.

You will apply best practices you learned in course resources and your own research to address the issues raised by the questions of this assignment.

Key considerations:

  • Your introduction, summary and understanding of the issues raised by the questions of this writing assignment
  • A short discussion of your research and conclusions you were able to draw from it.
  • An explanation of what you learned and how you will use this new understanding.

References needed: at least two quality resources such as the course textbook, company website, business websites (CNBC, Bloomberg, etc.), resources from the Strayer Library, and/or outside sources. Note: Wikipedia and web-based blogs do not qualify as credible resources.
