Using the countries you have already been assigned, write a professional paper (one that you can be proud of) which describes, compares, and contrasts their trade, investment, and immigration policies. What are their average tariff rates, and which types of products have tended to receive the lowest (and highest) tariff rates? What other non-tariff barriers do they use? Do they encourage foreign investment or migration? What international organizations and agreements do they it belong to? Are there significant internal political debates about their trade policies?
You MUST create all your own graphs. For the second paper, if you use even one graph produced by somebody else I will cut your score in half. Of course, if you use somebody else’s words without both quote marks and a citation, I will cut your score to zero and report you to university administration. The deadline will not be extended, and the late penalty is 10 points per day.
You can find useful data at the World Bank (https://wits.worldbank.org/ (Links to an external site.)), the WTO (https://www.wto.org/english/res_e/statis_e/merch_trade_stat_e.htm (Links to an external site.)), the UN (https://comtrade.un.org/data/ (Links to an external site.)), and the IMF (https://data.imf.org/?sk=9D6028D4-F14A-464C-A2F2-59B2CD424B85 (Links to an external site.)). You should also look at your countries’ own statistical agencies. Then find academic publications (the library has the EconLit database) and news articles about your country’s political debates and policies. You might even see if you can find data on their actual tariff rates on specific goods, rather than just their reported averages.
In your first report, you already collected data on trade patterns, et cetera. Now, without copying the work you have already done, expand that to consider the two countries’ policies. Your work must be original: use your own words, and create your own graphs with data you download. Do research, cite your sources using APA format, and list them in a references section at the end. If you think that a graph that you created for the first paper is exceptionally useful and looks professional, you can re-use it as long as you cite your first paper when you reference it.
The paper should be about 2000-3000 words, not counting tables and references. Tables and figures should be labeled but may be included in the text instead of at the end. Your paper should have an abstract of 100 words or less, followed by an introduction, three to five sections, and a summary or conclusion. Use section headings as appropriate to organize your paper. Use page numbers, as well as appropriate and consistent font sizes. Make your paper look professional, something you might show off to a potential employer.
Your paper will be checked by Turnitin.com after submission. Be certain that your words and ideas are your own, and that you created all tables and figures (i.e., in Excel) with data that you downloaded. Don’t submit those spreadsheets, but have them at the ready in case I ask.
Avoid quotes unless the author you are citing (and quoting) says it exceptionally well, and that means you need to learn how to paraphrase. If you copy graphs from some other source, you will lose half of your points. If you use words from some other source (except your own study 1) without quote marks and citations, you will receive a zero and be reported for plagiarism.
I have already given you several sources for collecting data. For policy, please try to find information from reputable sources, including good news articles from quality sources, studies from international organizations, and academic journal articles.
