Students are required to write a short paper (3 to 4 pages) summarizing an economic article (of their choice) on a topic related to those covered in class (fiscal policy, monetary policy, business cycle fluctuations,). 

The goal of the assignment is to read the paper and try to understand its (research) question and its conclusion (how they got to these conclusions what approach/methodology they used). You should write a summary of those question and findings. Importantly, a significant part of you paper should focus on relating the article to what we discussed in class i.e. to the models we covered, their assumptions, their implications
