Compose an original research paper on any topic broadly related to Labor Economics. Originality: The paper must add to our knowledge about Labor Economics – in simple terms – you must tell the world something new. There are many ways to add to our knowledge: either apply a theory we have learned in class to something in the developing world to teach your reader, critique existing research, or update previously completed research. See the guide to writing a research paper for more information. The key is to realize that research is not journalism – you are not reporting facts. Your paper should use economics to explain the world around us and teach your reader something non-obvious about the developing world. The topic and analysis do NOT need to be complex, but it cannot be so simple that a reader would not need to read your paper to understand your argument. Clear Thesis: The paper must present an argument. Just because you must take a position on something does not mean that the argument needs to be controversial or radical – but you have to show us why your perspective/ideas/interpretation is correct/superior or worth considering versus ideas in other research or competing explanations. Thorough Review of Literature: Your paper should summarize current research completed on the topic you are researching (or a similar topic). For example, if you want to write about how property rights can protect the Amazon from environmental degradation, you should summarize previous research on A) Protecting the Amazon and B) using property rights to protect the environment. The literature review should do two things 1) It should illustrate to the reader that you are adding to a conversation/debate on a particular topic instead of simply repeating what has already been written 2) It should show the reader that you are trustworthy source because you are aware of, and have considered, all current research on your topic. This portion of the paper will be approximately 2-3 pages and should be part of the introduction. Clear Economic Analysis: The paper should use economics along with reputable sources (Ideas from the textbook, Podcast, Articles, Scholarly Sources etc.,) in order to support the thesis. The economic analysis must be clear and correct. You should assume that your reader is an economics student. Therefore, you do not need to explain basic economics concepts (for example you do not need to explain what the law of demand is) but you may need to explain how economic theory applies to the subject you are writing about. Intellectual Honesty: It must be clear that you have considered arguments and perspectives that undermine your argument. Specifically, the best papers acknowledge and defeat the STRONGEST arguments and perspectives that undermine the author’s position. Clear Implications: Your paper should conclude by offering implications for public policy and/or future research. In other words, you should explain how the world is now different because you have written your paper. Format: You may use any standard citation format. I prefer MLA. Avoid using metaphors – these introduce ambiguity. Academic writing isn’t supposed to be engaging or entertaining. Do not ask the reader rhetorical questions. Avoid first-person pronouns to the extent possible. Use Topic sentences to introduce paragraphs. If your argument has multiple parts, include subsections & headings. There should be zero (or at minimum few) grammatical errors. Avoid the passive voice. There is no word or page minimum or maximum. I expect the average paper to be between 12-15 pages.
