Assignment 1: Demand-side Policies and the Great Recession of 2008 &l

Assignment 1: Demand-side Policies and the Great Recession of 2008
<

<br />Macroeconomic analysis deals with the crucial issue of government involvement in the operation of "free market economy." The Keynesian model suggests that it is the responsibility of the government to help to stabilize the economy. Stabilization policies (demand-side and supply-side policies) are undertaken by the federal government to counteract business cycle fluctuations and prevent high rates of unemployment and inflation. Demand side policies are government attempts to alter aggregate demand (AD) through using fiscal (cutting taxes and increasing government spending) or monetary policy (reducing interest rates). To shift the AD to the right, the government has to increase the government spending (the G-component of AD) causing consumer expenditures (the C-component of AD) to increase. Alternatively the Federal Reserve could cut interest rates reducing the cost of borrowing thereby encouraging consumer spending and investment borrowing. Both policies will lead to an increase in AD.

As I mentioned in class quite often, economic tools can be used to describe many things that happen in real life. This is exactly what I want you to do. I want you to select something of interest to you (something you read in a newspaper, heard on the news, something that happened to you or your family, etc.) and analyze it using the models that we have covered in this class.

I am not limiting your choice of topics, as long as you can make a valid analysis. For instance, at some point hurricane Katrina was quite a popular topic for an essay (since this is no longer a current event, this is not an option). Again, it is your choice what to analyze, but I would recommend that you discuss it with me before proceeding. I do not want you to lose points because you’ve chosen a topic that goes beyond the scope of this class and, as a result, beyond the scope of the tools that we cover. Do not try to jump over your head – we’re only humans, and there is a limit to our knowledge, skills and abilities. However do not make the topic so simple that you will only need to copy a couple of paragraphs from the text. I know that some of you have taken another Econ class before, but you should limit yourself to topics that can be analyzed with tools we have covered in this class (even if they were also discussed in the other class) for the purpose of this project.

So, if you decide to do this extra-credit project, I suggest that you think about a list of possible topics and then get in touch with me (preferably stop by my office) to discuss them. From there, once we decide on the topic, I will provide you with some individual guidelines so that you can start writing.

Formal requirements:
<
<
Typed, double-spaced, no smaller than 12pt font, standard margins.
<
Well-written, something along the lines of an article you would expect to see in a newspaper or a magazine, only with actual analysis rather than a bunch of smart words.
<
Support your arguments with graphs and diagrams where needed.
<
No more than 5 pages.
<
Make references to the articles/books/papers you use. Definitely indicate the source of the event you’re discussing.
