Part 1: Develop a thesis statement for one of your topics from Previous Assignment. Present your topic in 1-2 paragraphs. You may refer to the tips for “Developing Strong Thesis Statements” at Purdue Online Writing Lab: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/588/01/ (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. Your paragraph(s) should state your thesis, provide context and motivation for your thesis (statistics, why is it important to know), and include the main arguments you will use to support your claim.
Part 2: Provide an annotated bibliography with four credible sources, at least two of which must be from an economics/business journal or other economics/business scholarly publication. The other two sources may be scholarly, or be from popular media or a statistical/numerical data source. Each entry in your annotated bibliography will be a single-spaced paragraph summarizing the source document and how it relates to your argument. The format of each entry in your annotated bibliography will be:
The bibliographic information: I prefer the Chicago Style of citing, but you are welcome to choose another commonly used style if you are accustomed to another.
The annotations: A single-spaced paragraph summarizing your source document and how it relates to your thesis
Use double-spacing for the topic proposal paragraph(s) and single-spacing for the paragraphs in the annotated bibliography. Together, the proposal and annotated bibliography should total 1-2 pages in length.
