Make sure to select a Wall Street Journal article (300 words or more) that addresses all of the needed information below. A short article will often not provide you with enough detail to write about. In addition, purely statistical releases of data are not wise selections either. The article must be no older than 2014. For your chosen article, do the following:

  1. On the top of the page, provide the article citation in      current APA format.
  2. On the next line down, type the topic of your articles      (from the list above) in all caps and bold format.
  3. In a double-spaced document, briefly explain the      author’s purpose for writing the article. One way to understand the      author’s purpose is to ask yourself why he or she wrote it. (For example,      consider current and future events, politics, or anything else that may      have inspired the article.)
  4. Summarize the article, focusing on the discussion of      the topic the article addresses. Define the economic concept being      addressed. Incorporate relevant economic theory that is present so that      discussion of the article content is clear.
