This is a research paper which should contain about 2,500 words. The main idea of this research paper is to develop the work of an economist, a school of thought, a specific concept or a specific debate in the history of economic thought.
Some suggested topics are as follows: are the theories of imperialism valid today?; did recent U.S. financial crisis show that markets are imperfect?; did recent U.S. financial crisis show that Keynes was right?; markets adjust themselves?; why socialist Russia felt apart?; is Post-Keynesian theory of price superior to the neoclassical one?; is the theory of labor testable?
Also here you can use graphs, tables or equation(s) if you feel that this material will help to support your main points. The class will give you the necessary theoretical knowledge to develop a research paper but you should try to combine this knowledge with the use of statistics and real data (e.g. from the BEA, BLS, OCDE, UN, etc.) in order to support your main hypothesis. As the previous instructions, this research paper should contain a title, introduction, main body of your research paper, and conclusions. Finally, besides our textbook, you have to use at least 2 scholarly articles
