1 Intro Macro N. Sheflin Extra Credit Per the syllabus, the extra credit is worth up to 10 points. Do it if you are interested, have the time, and want some extra work. It can (but may not) help your grade, particularly if you are on the edge of a higher grade.It can also be interesting, educational, fun and something for me to write about in a future recommendation. Do any ONE of the following that appeals to you. Write your report as though addressing a clever friend who knows little economics, and use graphical or algebraic analysis as appropriate. Your work should be submitted via the ASSIGNMENTS Tab in SAKAI before the last class of the semester (directions later). Feel free to see me for help. Note that I have a file of extra credit worked submitted in the past ans will check all new submissions against this. I will also check with other anti-cheating resources.

Submit a 4-8 ‘typed’, double-spaced document. 1.
