Young Microeconomist Diary Assignment
During the duration of the semester, browse every week through the resources listed under the module “Good Economic Resources and News” and read, listen to or watch the ones that you find interesting. Choose 3 articles/videos/podcasts for Part 1 and 3 articles/videos/podcasts for Part 2 that you enjoyed or appreciated the most and that relate to the material you study in this course. (Total of 6 entries.) Please avoid articles/podcasts/videos which are already part of this course and which are posted on Canvas. If you wrote entries about more than 3 materials for each or any part, you may include them but please indicate which 3 entries you want me to focus on and grade. (You can indicate them by making them bold or changing the font to a different color.) Write a 200- 250 words paragraph about each resource. In each paragraph, summarize briefly (in a sentence or two) the content or thesis of the article/podcast/video, describe your reactions to what you have read/heard/watched and describe how it relates to the economic principles, concepts or models you study in this class.
Here are some questions you may consider addressing:
- Which economic models or concepts that we study in this course are discussed in the article/podcast/video? Explain clearly.
