Real World Economics (redux) provides you an opportunity to add points to your RWE presentations on a weekly basis. Every week we do a (S-Option) Student Option choice in RWE I’ll choose one article from all student assignments. I will link that article to the blog and I will post a question or series of questions that you must answer. You may earn up to five points extra credit on the previous week’s RWE assignment. This work will count individually – you do not have to work with your partner. I will post the due date and time, however expect that it will be at 11:00 PM on Wednesday of the week assigned. Students from Government and Senior Current Issues may choose to answer RWE ‘redux’ for extra credit. All written blog assignments must adhere to posted Blogging Guidelines.
Article selection for 9/29/08 – from Courtney Berghuis
This article does a really nice job of looking back over the past three decades in an effort to explain how we got to this crisis. I think you’ll find it illuminating. Now for the assignment. Identify four separate thoughts the author has provided – that helped bring on this crisis. Then explain each in paragraph form IN YOUR OWN WORDS. (Hint – there’s more than four in the article)
Assignment must be posted by 11:00 PM Wednesday.
