Assignment 5: Write a letter to your California State Assemblymember or State Senator

1. Identify your State Senator and State Assemblymember (Links to an external site.), and the address and website for their legislative office in Sacramento.  Select one of them. (If you are not a California voter, you can still select a representative based on where you currently live in the state).

2. You have two choices for the topic of your letter:

a. Review their website and choose a piece of legislation that they are sponsoring or an issue they are focused upon.

Or
b. Choose another piece of legislation that you feel strongly about and that is currently being addressed in the California State Legislature (Links to an external site.).

3. Write a letter to your member, expressing your views on the issue and what you think should be done. Be sure to reference the specific bill number and title. Be sure to carefully review and edit the letter for clarity, tone, proper grammar, and accurate information.

For these assignments, you will find an article pertaining to California, summarize the article, and then discuss the broader implications of the article. Applying the concepts from the readings will strengthen your analysis and even earn your a bonus point! You can use information from past article summaries if you want to focus on one topic throughout the semester. Each week you will have to use a different media source for the articles. Some weeks it will be your choice and other weeks will be set. My goal for these assignments is encourage you to learn about California politics through the lenses of different publications.

This week: Your Choice it just has to be about California

Tips for success: Many sites now use “pay walls” to prevent people from reading the news articles without subscribing. You can get around these paywalls by opening a second tab or window. These are called incognito tabs or windows and will allow you to look at more articles than the limit for the day.

To receive full credit:

The news article must be about California. Please include a link to your selected article with your analysis.
Your paper must quickly summarize the article, connect the article to the larger picture/debate around the topic.
It must be turned in on time or will receive a late grade.
Each analysis should be about 1 page (or 250-300 words), double spaced, Times New Roman font, 12-point font.

Find a news article about a microeconomic issue published after Aug 23, 2020 in a reputable newspaper or magazine, like the Financial Times, New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg Business Week, The Economist, Dollars and Sense.

Requirements:
Your news analysis should contain data, not just pure opinion; for example, the news cant be simply about what some prominent person thinks. You can discuss the data provided by the author; if the author provides no data, you need find some supporting evidence by yourself. The topic can be non-US economies.

1. Make clear reference of the news article at the beginning of your report: author, date, source, etc.

2. AUDIENCE: Write as if writing for the general public as if writing for a blog of an organization for which you were an intern. Students often write for their professors, and so leave out important facts and principles which are exactly what we want you to practice writing about.

3. SUMMARY: What part of the article do you want to comment on? Summarize it briefly.

4. RELATION to MICROECONOMIC PRINCIPLES: Note any concepts and/or cause-effect relationships in the article that illustrate OR seem to contradict something you learned about the microeconomics in this class. If possible, use equations and/or graphs to discuss such concepts or relationships. Explain any such equations or graphs, and how they relate to the article.

5. CRITIQUE & QUESTIONS: Do the authors claims seem valid, and supported by the evidence offered? What questions/objections about the authors claims do you have? Do you think the author is mistaken? Why? Are you aware of conflicting evidence? Is the logic flawed? Be clear and specific. If you ask questions, what evidence might help you answer them? Be as specific as possible. Or some type of comparative data for the US and other countries?

6. NEW: Whats new or interesting to you in the article? Is the new part convincing?

7. FORMAT: 12-point or 11-point font; 1 inch margin; 1.5 line spacing; 400 – 600 words (apart from
citations). Max 3 pages, counting any diagrams you draw and Works Cited.

8. WORKS CITED: List Works Cited the article itself and any others used; cite the source of any facts, using a standard citation system consistently (not just the URL) Help: www.chicagomanualofstyle.org; click on Quick Citation Guide (on the right).
