As part of integrating theory with real world events, regularly read the New York Times newspaper, The Guardian, Financial Times, and economics blogs. See the list of blogs to choose from, and their websites, below.
1. Select a newspaper article from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, or Financial Times clearly related to macroeconomics. You may instead choose from one of the blogs listed below; most of your posts, however, should be based on a newspaper article.
2. Every two weeks, write the equivalent of a one-page reaction (350 – 500 words) to the selected article or blog entry. This should be uploaded into the appropriate discussion board on BB. Clearly identify 1) the source of the article and 2) the main argument of the article; and 3) provide your analytical reaction to it. You should, for example, note the linkages between the issues discussed in the article and the theoretical material we are covering in class. You may also compare the event with economic events in other countries or regions. And you may offer a critique of the author’s approach to analyzing a particular issue (are their assumptions appropriate, for example?).
3. Your entry should be clearly connected to our course material. If it is not, choose a different article. Make sure to make the connection between the article and theory we are discussing in class (don’t assume the reader understands the link).
4. The web link for the article or blog post should be at the bottom of your post. Do NOT repeat the title of the article in the paper or source.
