You are required to read and analyze a recent article from The Wall Street Journal. You will then write a review of the article that is at least 300 words and in current APA format.
Module/Week 5 Topic Choices: (Choose One)
Federal budget deficits
Mandatory government spending
Effects of the federal debt on the economy
Expansionary fiscal policy
Make sure to select an article (300 words or more) that addresses all of the needed information below. Short articles will often not provide you with enough detail to write about. In addition, purely statistical releases of data are not wise selections either. The article must be no older than 2014. For your chosen article, do the following:
- On the top of the page, provide the article citation in current APA format.
- On the next line down, type the topic of your articles (from the list above) in all caps and bold format.
- In a double-spaced document, briefly explain the author’s purpose for writing the article. One way to understand the author’s purpose is to ask yourself why he or she wrote it. (For example, consider current and future events, politics, or anything else that may have inspired the article.)
- Summarize the article, focusing on the discussion of the topic the article addresses. Incorporate relevant economic theory that is present so that discussion of the article content is clear.
