A white paper is a persuasive and informative paper on a complex issue. Businesses use them for marketing purposes but nonprofits and government organizations use them to make a case for certain policies or programs. For the Economic Policy White Paper you will write a 10-page paper making the case for an economic policy that you have found effective at addressing an economic problem of your choosing. Assignments through the semester will help you identify a public problem; identify the economic elements impacting the problem; policy solutions that address the problem; and making the case for your recommended solution. This white paper will be grounded in and will make use of course materials and themes.
