The proposal earns you up to five points, and a soft copy is due on Canvas by 9:00 AM next Monday, April 27. A proposal, which may be in the form of one or more questions, is a typed outline that includes the sources that you propose to consult, and is not a summary— What topic should you choose? I require you to describe and evaluate the progress or failure to develop economically of a country or region over a period of time. The country or region may be any one in Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, and the Pacific. (You may not choose Britain, Ireland, or a country in continental Europe, or the U.S. or Canada, or Australia or New Zealand, but you may write about Russia or Japan.) Your writing should focus on how and why economic development proceeded—rapidly, slowly, or not at all, as the case may be. You should select a period of time, shorter or longer as you see fit. (A paper on the economic development of a colony before it became a sovereign nation is an appropriate topic, e.g., the Gold Coast under British rule before independence as Ghana in 1957.) There is one caveat. If you chose a country from East or SE Asia for your first term paper, you may not choose another country from that same region, but you may choose a country from the Indian subcontinent, or the Middle East, or Africa, or Central and South America, including the Caribbean. If you chose a country from the Indian subcontinent for your first term paper, you may not choose a country from that same region, but you may choose a country from East or SE Asia, or the Middle East, or Africa, or Central and South America, including the Caribbean. If you chose a country from North Africa or the Middle East for your first paper, you may not choose another country from the same region, but you may choose a country from East or SE Asia, or the Indian subcontinent, or tropical Africa, or Central and South America, including the Caribbean. If you chose a country from tropical Africa, you may not choose another country from that region. And if you chose a country from Central and South America, including the Caribbean, you may not choose another country from that region. I think that takes care of every possibility. If you are in any doubt whatsoever about what would make a suitable country and/or time period for your term paper, contact me. You may expect to hear back from me within 24 hours, probably a lot less. How to research the topic To get you started, look through the case studies in our textbook, Todaro & Smith 2015, and then consult the following resource: The New Palgrave Dictionary of Economics Living Edition (2019- ) online at https://link.springer.com/referencework/10.1057%2F978-1-349-95121-5 (Your library registration gives you access to this and other online materials.) Bear in mind that it’s okay to use discriminating and thoughtful use of websites containing worthwhile material (but be sure to cite correctly what you find—full URL and date visited). Instructions for writing the paper The paper should be typed in Times New Roman 12-point font (and use italic, bold or underline sparingly), double-spaced (like this sentence), and with one-inch margins, top and bottom, left and right. The paper (not including the cover sheet and the bibliography and/or references) should be 1500-2500 words in length. Papers that are too short lose points. And papers that exceed 2500 words had better be worth reading! Instructions for writing the paper (cont’d) You should write your full name, “Econ 112,” “Spring 2020,” “Term Paper 2,” and the word count (not including the bibliography and/or references) on the cover sheet. Large, clearly labeled diagrams may be used where appropriate (but don’t include them in the word count). A bibliography and/or references typed in a consistent format should be included at the end of the paper. A 1500-word paper without a cover sheet, diagrams, and bibliography would fill 5-6 pages depending on the spacing between paragraphs. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS. Honor code The university regards cheating and plagiarizing as serious offenses against the honor code and I shall not hesitate to enforce the rules.
