The paper is to provide an opportunity to research and write on a topic of interest from the menu of course themes (Questions); to develop students’ ability to digest and synthesise a range of materials and show an understanding of key concepts and discussion about the world economy.
Write good clear English. (Good grammar and logical clarity go together).
Write with a straightforward style and mature tone.
Answer the question; do not merely write about the topic in a general way.
Consider that Turnitin is enabled
Have a clear overall line of argument; made plain in the introduction or conclusion.
Give your paper a good logical structure giving the reader a clear idea of the substance of and purpose of each section what it is it dealing with, and what it is trying to show.
Cover the bases and stick to the point. Deal with the important and relevant issues involved in answering the question. Avoid irrelevant considerations, waffle etc.
Argue (do not merely assert) your view; using both evidence and logical supporting arguments.
Show recognition of the key critical arguments that might be made against your view, and rebut them.
Use recommended references (though obviously you are not restricted to them). This is how to ensure you do the three preceding things. It shows you have engaged with the course materials (which is necessary), but also it is these materials that will in turn tell you what the question is actually about, what considerations are relevant to answering it, and what others might say, for or against your view. One of the commonest errors over which students lose grades is failure to read the course materials and a resulting failure to understand what the question is about and thus what is relevant to answering it. Even an intelligent answer that misses the point because of simple failure to read recommended work cannot get a decent grade.
Avoid flaky sources, of the kind you might pick up by just �googling� a topic; don�t just wander online or into a library looking for sources in the general topic area. Focus your reading�start with my suggested readings then pursue your own lines of inquiry (following the bibliography of good sources is a much better way to develop a reading list than �blue sky� internet or library searches).
Ability to conduct independent guided research, to synthesise and analyse and assess evidence and argument from multiple sources. But also engagement with course materials.
Ability to grasp key concepts and understand important and topical debates about the world economy.
Ability to construct a clear, well focussed, well written and logically sound account of the chosen topic.
Ability to argue a point of view whilst showing knowledge of and anticipating competing views.
‘Globalisation is exaggerated’: Discuss.
Analyse the key elements of the international economic regime embodied in the Bretton Woods institutions, in the decades immediately after WW2 (with regard to monetary policy and exchange rates, international credit, and policies for handling international payment imbalances and adjustment). How does this differ from what Keynes wanted?
The world is not flat. Discuss.
According to Gruber, just because a nation signs up to trade liberalisation, a regional trade agreement or the WTO, is no proof that it is an optimal and preferred policy. How can this be and do you agree?
Discuss the case for and against the liberalisation of international capital flows.
Analyse the nature and aims of US strategy towards the international economy at the end of WW2. What problems and threats was it designed to tackle and what obstacles did it face?
Why did the global financial system meltdown in 2008?
Was the euro a bad idea?
