You are an analyst at Bates White (http://www.bateswhite.com), consulting firm offering quantitative, economic, and financial expertise, with consulting services in litigation and business strategy. One service that Bates White provides to its customers is a monthly newsletter that includes updates on key economic variables (note that Bates White’s clientele includes firms in many different sectors of industry, as well as some policy organizations). Your boss has asked you to come up with a 300-500 word article for this month’s newsletter. He suggests topics such as the declining value of the Chinese Yuan versus the American Dollar, the federal debt, or the state of world oil markets would be appropriate. Typically, each article contains a chart historically contextualizing the market or issue under investigation. Data for the chart should cover a time span of ten years.
Additional Instructions: the chart should be a stand-alone product that is properly labeled. You will need to integrate the chart into your writing by referencing its data. Your report should address the Who-What-Where-When-Why-How issues discussed in class.
Papers will be turned in through the assignment link available in blackboard.

You should bring two copies of your first draft to the writers’ workshop on February 1st.
Final copy of paper due February 8th.
I will focus on three specific areas in grading:
1. Economic content. Most importantly, economic concepts should be relevant and used correctly. Although the audience for this report should be familiar with basic concepts, some jargon may need explanation.
2. Graphic. Is the graphic clear, appropriate and self-sufficient? Is it well integrated with the text?
3. Overall clarity. Are ideas clearly expressed? Any problems with basic writing (spelling, grammar, punctuation) should be fixed before grading (more than two or three typos will be returned without a grade). I will be evaluating the readability, clarity and style of the paper overall.
