Discussion: Government Spending and Debt


This week, we will be watching another video series about Government Spending and Debt. I highly suggest taking notes as you read to help outline your main discussion post. Avoid opinion and try to write in the 3rd person.

Please make sure to write about the video link above.

Remember that Discussions are a large and integral part of your grade for the course. Forty Percent (40%) of your grade will depend on Discussions.

After reading the following information about your Discussion Assignments. Please ensure that you watch the video below (about 10 minutes) where I talk about the expectations and what constitutes exemplary work on these assessments. In essence this is an expository essay, but without any type of “set up” needed because we are all discussing the same topic.

After you read, listen, or watch the assigned material, you will create a Main post that consists of your own individual analysis of the material in essay format. This should be written in the Third-person objective point of view and must include in-text citations for any claims, assertions, or facts that you include in your post.

You must be careful to not espouse your opinion and do not just recap (or summarize) the material. Use your writing to demonstrate that you understand the material and that you have completed all of the assigned material. This means you must be broad enough in your analysis to cover all the material while also providing specific examples to support your points.

You will want to keep 3 things in mind while you write:

  1. Use plain language: Writing in this class will strive towards formal writing that is plain and straightforward. Literary devices such as metaphors, alliteration, or anecdotes are not appropriate for analytical writing.
  2. Conciseness and clarity of language: The social sciences (of which economics is a part of) stresses clear, concise prose. You should be able to make connections between empirical evidence and the economic theory that you have learned during this course.
  3. Evidence-based reasoning: The social sciences base its arguments on empirical evidence. Personal examples, observations, narratives, or opinions are not appropriate.

Avoid Summarizing the material
