In economic history there have been many great Economists who have developed theories, concepts and ideas which have improved our economy to a great degree. Below are five very influential and important economists:
Friedrich A Hayek
John M. Keynes
I tried to include a diverse group so at least one will spark your interest. Please look at the Wikipedia link to get some brief information on them, but use Wikipedia only as a starting point in your research and DO NOT include Wikipedia as a reference in your papers. Wikipedia is a great place for information, but should not be used as a source in academic writing. The issue is that anyone can edit it so please use this only as a starting point.
If none of the above interest you or you are interested in a different economist please send me an email with the economist you wish to write about and a brief (one or two paragraphs) as to your rational for selecting this person.
Please discuss the different economic theories of the person of your choice. Why are they important? Have they helped or hurt our economy? If they were alive today, what do you think he would suggest as an economic plan for our economy? Would they agree or disagree with the current policies?
You must use APA and include the following in your paper: Cover page, Thesis Statement (included in the introduction and typically the last sentence of the introduction), Body of paper, Conclusion, Reference Page (NOT a works cited or bibliography as this is APA). The Paper is due at the end of Unit 7 and I will check all papers for plagiarism. Any papers that have plagiarism will automatically be graded a 0 and will be turned over to the Academic Affairs Department at Post University for further action.
Late papers will be accepted but there is a significant late penalty of -25 points each day it is late. In other words, if you submit one day late the maximum grade you can receive is a 75% so please be sure to work ahead on your paper
Grade point value is 100 and is 20% of your grade.
The paper must be 5 to 8 pages in length (not including the cover page or reference page) and include at least three references besides the textbook
