Assignment 1: Economic Brief

Due Week 5, worth 150 points

This assignment is aligned to these course outcomes:

• Explain economic principles and their applications in the real world.

• Summarize the different types of market structures and the role of government in economics.

In the workplace, we are often asked to create “briefs.” A brief provides a snapshot, or short, written summary, of a situation or event that has occurred. It is generally just a few pages long and may include additional visuals like a graph, chart, or table. In this assignment, write a brief about economic concepts in an industry that interests you.

Industry Selection and Background Resources

Use this resource to select an industry:

• NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) These resources are available to help you identify a U.S. industry and the products and services it provides:

• Mergent Online Help Video on Mergent Industry Reports

• Business Source Complete United States Industry Profiles All Industry Profiles by Country (select Industry Profiles in the left menu Source Types)

• Flipster Online Magazines Scroll through to view these recommendations: Bloomberg Businessweek and Fast Company

Preparation

1. Begin this assignment by selecting an industry (and/or subsector) from the NAICS list.

2. To best prepare for this assignment, it will be important to review the industry background resources above, The Little Book of Economics and the OpenStax chapter readings, as well as your prior discussion board questions and responses.

3. Use the optional template to help you get started.

4. Get familiar with the Strayer Writing Standards (SWS). (See Instructions below.)
