For this discussion post, please answer each of the following questions. In responding, please present your answers thoroughly (one word, or extremely short answers will not suffice; each answer should generally be one paragraph in length).
- Of all the topics covered in this course, which did you find the most interesting? What about this topic made it the most interesting for you? In your answer, please describe any economics terms you use, in language that is simple enough that someone who hasn’t taken economics can understand. (For example, if you said you enjoyed GDP, then in your answer you would need to describe what the GDP is.)
- Of all the topics covered in this course, which did you enjoy the least? What was it about this topic that caused it to be your least favorite (presentation, topic in general, etc)? In your answer, please describe any economics terms you use, in language that is simple enough that someone who hasn’t taken economics can understand.
- In what way(s) has this course changed any of your perceptions about the field of economics (and/or specifically macroeconomics)? What additional questions do you have that were not fully addressed this semester? Since beginning this course, what are some of the ways you’ve seen economics in everyday life? (This may include the news, books, video game mechanics, etc).
In answering the above, you will not be graded on your opinion (in other words, you are free to say you liked/did not like anything – there’s no right or wrong answer). Rather, your answers will be graded for proper spelling, grammar, and care of thought put into fully answering the questions. For extra credit for reading these instructions thoroughly, write the word “purple” at the start of your answer to question three above. Do not reference why you are doing so. Generally, each answer above should be about a paragraph in length (approximately 3 – 5 sentences). Feel free to also post comments on your classmates’ postings as well (you will get to see them after posting your own)!
