You should write a paper that is between 2 and 5 pages in length. You can address any aspect of the topic. When you do so, focus on one aspect. Do not cover multiple ones as that will likely take up too much space. Possible topics/questions you could address include, but are not limited to the following: o Has the trade war with China made it easier or more difficult to respond to the current pandemic? o Should certain products be protected by import restrictions for national security reasons? o Should supply chains of certain products be limited to only producers located in the same country? o Should outsourcing/offshoring of certain production processes be limited? ï‚· Each of these questions, as well as many other ones can be addressed/answered arguing either in the affirmative or the negative. Your paper will not be graded based on which side of the argument to take. Rather, it will be graded based on the quality of the economic argument that you make. Almost all arguments can be supported by appealing to models and ideas we discussed during the semester. You can also use arguments from other economics courses you have taken.
All your submissions will go through TurnItIn which checks it for plagiarism.
