This paper should be about three pages (not including bibliography), typed and double-spaced. Papers are literature-research papers and may NOT be based on information extracted from the text or class discussions (research papers do not rely on encyclopedias and information from online websites. They are based on literature search through the library). The paper is about the historic evolution of an economics topic/concept for which a suggestive list is included below. If you have another topic, you can bounce that to me. You may post your paper topic, your preliminary research, and possible findings on Canvas to solicit a brief comment regarding the suitability of your topic (there will be a non-gradable assignment page on Canvas). A word of caution is that the paper is not about the selected topic. It is on the evolution of the topic: what it was, what it is. Papers must follow all the prerequisites of a term paper–grammar, choice of words, format, references, etc.).
Suggested topics for the paper (evolution of the concept):
Economic systems (capitalism, state capitalism, socialism, etc)
Legitimization of profit (position of capital owners)
The environmental movement (its Economics)
Regulations of firms
Taxation and efficiency
