Your research paper topic, a 100-word research paper abstract, and list of scholarly references is due in week 5. A late submission penalty of 5 percentage points per day or portion of a day will be assessed against your final research paper grade.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your research topic meets the criteria for analysis of international trade and finance. I do not approve or disapprove a topic; I merely obtain a topic from you and then check your submitted research paper against your submitted topic.
Selection of a research topic is up to you. Review various international economic theory/issues in the textbook and supplemental material, identify real life situations that have occurred or are occurring that parallel or mimic international economic theory/issues from the textbook, select one of these real life scenarios that is of interest to you, and submit this topic.
As a reminder, research paper must analyze current international trade and finance activity; background information should be minimal; definitions are not to be included. Paper should explain, in dollars or a countryâ€™s currency, changes to GDP, employment, what profits/losses occurred related to your topic, what happened economically because of your topic, what your topic contributed to or detracted from the U.S. and/or other affected countriesâ€™ economies, etc. Focus is on economics, not socio-economic factors or a political/social problem.
