IMPORTANT Guidelines for paper
1. You are doing a short research paper. Therefore, you need come up with research
questions or thesis. Think what interests you in what we cover in the class.
o If you are interested in outsourcing, your research questions could be “Is the US
better off or worse off because of the outsourcing to China?”. Then you go do a
research on it. Find academic articles or news articles that support and/or
o You do research by reading those articles that you found and then combine the
information you find into a unified paper that represents your fully formed
expertise. The key to the whole thing is “combining,” so as you do your research,
look for facts and information that go well together and help explain (or disagree
with) each other
o You may start with your introduction and research questions. Then start a
second paragraph with a short explanation of what is “outsourcing” and state
facts such as how many dollars or how many jobs the US outsourced to China in
The paper must show an analysis of a real world outsourcing situation such as
what are the problems with the outsourcing, why there are the problems, how
to fix the problems, what the pros and cons of each solution are, and how it will
affect consumers who buy imported goods at Walmart or exporters to China.
o Warning: You should have one or two research questions or more depending on
your interest. If you only have one research question for your whole paper and
that question is “what is outsourcing”, for example, you basically just look for a
definition or a textbook explanation. This will NOT be a good research paper.
This is NOT a high school paper.
o A paper that only provides definition, textbook explanation, or news/facts
reporting will NOT earn good scores. You are not writing a dictionary or a
textbook or a newspaper. You are writing an economics research paper.
o Do not get stuck on picking a cool topic or a topic with economics keywords. If a
high school paper is about a topic, a college paper is about research question(s)
or thesis statement. A topic such as pregnancy can be good topic if the research
question is, for example, what are the opportunity costs of pregnancy before
finishing high school comparing to after finishing high school and college.
2. The topics and articles provided here are just examples. You are not limited to these
topics. You can pick any topic that related to what we cover in exam#1.
3. You should look for more articles for your research. In order to get an “A” for paper you
must use at least four news articles for your research. If you use only the article that I
provide here, it will only give you a maximum of a “C+”. So, go out and find more articles
that compliment your research questions.
Do not to use spoken language in academic writing. Write from 3rd person perspective
Do not use contraction in a formal writing.
This is the topic I choose.
Tuition-Free University Gains a Following
Applied Topics: Scarcity, economic goods, opportunity cost
1. Is the online University of the People free in the sense of an economist’s use of
that word? Why or why not?
2. Is there any cost (accounting cost VS. economic cost) associated with attending
the University of the People when it is supposed to be “free”? Why? So, when
we use the word “free” in our daily life, what does it really mean?
