Purpose of Assignment 

This week requires the student to address six unresolved issues in macroeconomics, each of which is central to current political debates. Students are required to use information and tools that they have accumulated in their study of the text and evaluate both sides of those issues, determine which side they can support for each issue, and defend their positions. 

Assignment Steps 

Select two subjects from the following list of topics and write a 1,050-word analysis: 

  • Active monetary and fiscal policy
  • Increased government spending to fight recessions
  • Reducing federal government's discretionary powers
  • Zero-inflation target
  • Balanced government budget
  • Tax incentives for saving

Evaluate both the advocates' position and the critics' position.

Determine which position you support and defend your position. 

Cite a minimum of three peer-reviewed sources not including your textbook. 

Format consistent with APA guidelines. 

As Discuss


 1. SCIENCE:  what exactly happened genetically (do not list symptoms) to the the first generation women when they were given the DES?   EXPLAIN.


2.  LEGAL :  could any of these groups  SUE?

which ones?   

WHAT SHOULD the argument be if they sue?

Who would  win? WHY?

What should the settlement be (not just money)?

What group should have stepped in and stopped this? and HOW?

3. ETHICAL: Were the doctors who gave this to women responsible for what happened to them and subsequent generations?  WHY or WHY NOT?

4. Why did these women take an unknown substance? 

5. This has happened very few times in medical history.  Find one example that has happened recently and tell me about it

6. A new area of genetics called EPIGENETICS (page 134) has recently given an explanation about what might have happened.  What is epigenetics and how does it fit into the case?


7.  future of DES.  Do you think this could go on for many generations in the future.  EXPLAIN.


8 find a family  that has been affected by DES and write their story. 


9. the worst thing about this is it will follow generations and we aren’t sure how it will affect them.  Look at the chart and make a prediction what you think happen in the future.


            There is a chart, reading and information about all generations on page 141 but the questions above need research to answer, and I am attaching it here.

Transportation Logistics Management 

Post essays directly into your assignment folders. Your Essay must be two double space pages in length with a minimum of 1000 words and must follow both the Rubrics and APA guidelines. The essays must also include a cover page and reference page.

  You will need to submit research paper topic for approval by no later than the end of third week. You have considerable freedom in choosing a topic, with the exception of the topic must apply directly to this class. The requirement is that you choose a topic that requires academic research not business research and that you submit both your paper topic (which should not contain question) and a full paragraph statement, that statement must contain a research question to be answered or a hypothesis to be tested. Most "why" questions focus more on workplace related issues and business not academic or scholarly research so they seldom are acceptable questions for scholarly research
