You must identify your concept and include an explanation of the theory (first paragraph). Your research should center on current applications. Please use endnotes and make sure your bibliography/references are included at the end of the paper. Do not use your book as it is not a current article and does not count as a source. Sources must include the Wall Street Journal and 3 additional publications. Articles must be less than 6 months old. If you use an article from the Internet, make sure it is from a legitimate publication and has an identified author. The only exception is The Economist.
Do not use information from on-line blogs, chat rooms or on-line discussion boards, Wikipedia, Investopedia, Dictionary.com, Econedlink.com, or any source ending in pedia, eHow, Course Hero, etc. Do not use resources which focus on definitions. Do not use any work by Kimberly Amadeo, writer for The Balance or any other articles from this publication.
The paper should have at a minimum four pages of content. One graph or table is required and should be included in the appendix, not in the body of the paper. They must reflect the topic. As an example, a simple supply and demand graph which does not represent your review of the topic is not sufficient. Do not use any quotes within the body of the paper. If you decide to include any quotes, they must be placed in the appendix. The graph or table must support the economic theory covered in the paper. Explanations of the graphs/tables should be included in the body of the paper. Graphs and tables may either be hand drawn or copied and pasted from another source. The source must be identified and the reference included in the bibliography. The paper must be typed, double spaced, Times New Roman size 12 font, and one-inch margins. Do not 4 space between paragraphs and headings.
