If you would like to receive credit for this topic as one of your two required debate/Op-Ed grades (see the Grading section of the syllabus for a reminder), please do the following:

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. Completing this is the bare minimum requirement for receiving credit.

If you’re looking for some examples of what an Op-Ed should look like, I’ve pasted some of my own op-ed articles over the years on a variety of topics below. The only difference is that I would like you to add a works cited (i.e. references) for your submission so that I can clearly see where you got your source material. Please make sure the references are written in APA format (it’s super easy to do this on and other sites). I will check for plagiarism, so be sure to use quotes and properly attribute your arguments where necessary. (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.) (Links to an external site.)
