APEC/ECON 343 Assignment Instructions
For this assignment, I ask that you pick and write about a topic (of your choice)related to Chapter 4. Thus, your chosen topic must be related to externalities or public goods. The point of this assignment is to deliver a convincing and scientifically sound analysis of this topic – it should include methods and argumentation discussed in this course.Below I am giving you detailed directions as to the structure, references and length of your paper. Please remember to be friendly, tolerant and respectful – this includes academic honesty.
Your paper should have the following 6 sections:
(1) Title Page[4 points]
(2) Introduction and Motivation (600-800 words)[8 points]
(3) Proposition and Analysis (600-800 words)[8 points]
After you have introduced and motivated your topic, you should propose possible mitigations to your issue. Perhaps there are a few more references that could help you? You should also think about how you can incorporate methods discussed in the course, e.g. how do marginal benefits and marginal costs affect your analysis? Can you propose a mathematical model that captures your ideas? Are there graphics you can include to highlight your point? Is there data out there that can be used to support your argument(perhaps you can include simple descriptive statistics to support your argument)? These are just a few suggestions – you are responsible for convincing the reader of the value and validity of your argumentation.
(4) Discussion and Conclusion (300-400 words)[6 points]
What sort of broader discussion and policy recommendations do you have? Please present them here. Lastly, conclude by summarizing your paper and the key points it makes.
(5) References[4 points]

If you are struggling with referencing, please have a look here: https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/journals/jaere/instruct (scroll down to “preparing your references”), or ask your TAs.
(6) Appendix (if needed)[no separate points listed as an appendix supports the rest of your paper]
Please place additional supportive information in the appendix. This could be supportive figures or tables you did not have space for or that did not merit inclusion in the main body of your work. It is ok if you do not have anything for an appendix, in that case, just leave it blank.
