eco3351 fiscal stimulus

Fiscal Stimulus. As I noted last week, you will have another chance to complete one of your required two op-ed grades this week by answering the question: “what do you think the federal government should do, if anything, in terms of fiscal stimulus to respond to the Coronavirus’s negative impact on the economy?”

Here are some articles you can read to inform yourself of the debate on this topic:

The same rules will apply in terms of length and format. Write a 700-800 word Op-Ed taking a side on this issue. Please make sure it is double spaced, includes your name on the top-left corner, is properly cited using APA format (ideally you should have 3-5 references; they can include news articles, research papers, books, etc.), and draws from sound economic arguments. Since we will not be meeting as a class you MUST upload a copy of this to the Debate #5 (Fiscal Stimulus) assignment in Canvas in order to receive credit so that I can run it through the plagiarism scanner.
