Students will combine their knowledge of economics, including macro, micro, and quantitative methodologies, with their skills at exposition in a journalistic format, in order to address current economic issues related to firm-level decisions (e.g., where to locate production) and the economic consequences of these decisions at home and abroad for different shareholders. Students will conduct independent research to produce weekly articles. Assignments may include coverage of journal articles, book reviews, and interviews with academic economists. Class sessions will be organized as workshops devoted to critiquing the economic content of student work.
