Lesson Activity

Lesson  Activity: Writing Assignment
Activity Details

This week's reading assignment proposes a relatively bold new way of thinking about how we handle our biggest policy challenges. After reading the lesson content and the article for this week, form an educated opinion about this concept of countercyclical policy. Decide whether you think it represents a more efficient approach to problems or whether you have serious reservations about it. There is no right or wrong answer. The key to successful completion of this activity lies in the following: your ability to discuss our historical and current political process in juxtaposition to Nemet et. al's countercyclical discussion and ground your opinion in supported documentation. Beyond this, contextualize the policy you're reviewing for your Research Project and speculate whether the challenges it addresses could be better served with this different approach.
