PSU ECON 002 Spring 2008  Smith The General Education Writing Assignment For this project, your group should identify two interesting questions from the world  around you and provide reasonable answers using the tools and insights of economics.  Inspiration and examples for this project can be found in Robert H. Frank’s “The Economic  Naturalist: In Search of Explanations for Everyday Enigmas,” Basic Books, 2007.  A few copies  of this book are on reserve in the library, though it is an interesting read and many will find it  worth the purchase price.   Each group will submit a paper 3-5 pages in length, double-spaced, with 12-point font.  Exceeding the page limit indicates you have not sufficiently honed your argument, and will  likely correlate with a lower score.  In the paper you should present and answer the two original  and interesting questions your group selects.  Use of the Frank book is for examples and  inspiration; you must develop your own questions.  Each of your answers is likely to be longer

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
