For the discussion forum for this week, each student is to find and summarize an article relevant to the assigned text reading for the week. Feel free to
choose something that is of interest to you and applicable to your area of study. Ideally it would be an article that can be used as a source for your final
paper. Your summary response should be a minimum of 300 words. Use APA style to cite the article and source, as well as, throughout the summary.
Articles should come from peer reviewed journals or other acceptable sources (not Wikipedia). Sources such as Wall Street Journal, New York Times,
Financial Times, The Economist, as well as others, are acceptable.
Remember, this is an Economics class, the theories and terminology of the subject should be part of your discussion. Use the language and “economic way
of thinking” to form your summary.
To receive full credit for the weekly discussion you must respond to at least two of your classmates summaries.
Your Summary should include the following:
Summarization of the author’s thesis.
How the author supports his argument.
How is this information useful in your life or work.
