This paper is for college level economic writing class
Students are required to write a policy papers on a public policy issue. The papers should analyze the policy based on the policy’s stated goals and judged based on whether or not the policy achieves its goal. The paper must include both economic reasoning and empirical evidence. Ultimately, the policy paper is to take a position (supportive or not) on the given policy; if not supportive, an alternative should be presented.
Each paper is to be a 600 – 900 words (roughly 2 – 3 pages) You need not write an executive summary for this, and only the body of your document will count toward the word requirement (not inclusive of title page or reference list).
You should include reference to 3 - 7 academic/policy center studies to support your argument.
Be sure to motivate this issue and why it is important. You must take a position (favoring a policy or not favoring a policy). This is not to suggest you believe it is the best possible way to address the issue; maybe you are analyzing only those policies which have been considered by politicians and you could conclude that, while not the optimal solution, this is the best of those under consideration. You must address other alternatives to solving the issue, though.
Overall, be sure to include a description of the problem to be addressed. What is your proposed solution? Why is it a preferred solution, supported with evidence? What are other possible solutions and why are they inferior, supported with evidence? How to move forward?
