Choose a specific web/information service you use regularly (e.g. Amazon two-day shipping, mobile phone networks, TikTok recommendations, or propose your own to us). In a 400-600 word essay, address the following:
First, describe and draw your own mental model for how you understand how this system works, starting with your initial point of contact during a typical interaction (e.g. the search bar in Amazon, dialing a number or opening an app on your mobile phone, your initial login screen on TikTok, etc.). Also (briefly) reflect on the origins of your mental model–that is, how you figured out what you know/believe about the system’s functionality–and how “typical” you think your mental model is compared to the general population. While this is a more reflexive and speculative exercise, please bring in concrete examples whenever possible.
Finally, analyze the design affordances, disaffordances, and dysaffordances you observe in the system. Please be concrete, providing screenshots or other specifics when possible.

BIBLICAL INTEGRATION: GLOBAL ENVIRONMENT AND TRADE THEORY
Answer one (1) of the following questions that interests you in a minimum of 150 words. You must include at least 2 biblical references in APA format:
Question 1
1. Matthew 22:36-40 states, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus
replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your
mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your
neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
What would be the implications for nations to follow the above, when considering
tariffs, quotas, and embargoes? Write a short essay for each consideration.
Question 2
2. Psalm 24:1 states: “A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD’S, and all it contains, The
world, and those who dwell in it”. 1 Corinthians 10:26 states: “… for, “The earth is the
Lord’s, and everything in it.” Job 41:11 states: “Who has a claim against me that I must pay?
Everything under heaven belongs to me.”
Consider the above scriptures and write a short essay on the biblical worldview
response to ownership, operation, and transfer risk. Give equal response to each type of
risk
Question 3
3. Ecclesiastes 11:11 states: “Cast your bread on the surface of the waters, for you will find it after many days.” As mentioned in the text, Solomon was deeply involved in cross-border
commerce. Consider the trade of grain. When the Israelites would trade their grain with other nations, they were essentially “casting [their] bread upon the water.” But notice that with Solomon, the word is plural: “cast your bread on the waters.”
a. Write a short essay explaining the implications from a business perspective regarding
diversification of money, assets, and investments of “casting you bread upon the
waters”?
b. Write a short essay on the biblical worldview response to dealing with business risk
within the context of cross-border commerce. What are some proper ways to approach
business risk while at the same time being responsible with investments? How is being
responsible with investments different than a business gamble since both involve the
risk of losing?
Question 4
4. Consider the trade theories: Mercantilism, Absolute advantage, Comparative advantage,
Factor proportions theory, International product life cycle, International Trade Theory, or
New Trade Theory.
Select one of them and determine what are the Biblical Worldview shortcomings of the
selected theories and what if any recommendations would you make to do away with
these shortcomings

characteristics make this impossible?

In this project the student chooses some economic variable that varies across locations in the US and is available publicly, e.g., average income by county

In this project the student chooses some economic
variable that varies across locations in the US and is available publicly, e.g., average income by county. They
then use statistical software (R, Python, Stata) to plot this variable on a map of the US. In addition they
write up to 400 words on a topic inspired by this map. For example, if you show average income you could
write about income inequality across space and some of the reasons for income inequality across space that
we have learnt about or policy attempts to alleviate it. Students have to hand in a pdf with the map and
write up and their code that constructs the map. Our TA Jinhyeon Han Chen will hold a session on how to
use mapping software and be generally available to provide guidance on this project. A separate guide on
the Mapping Project with substantially more detail is available on Canvas.

The Fed and Monetary PolicyMonetary policy is the action taken by the Federal Reserve to expand or contract the money supply and influence interest rates. What are the current unemployment and inflation rates? How has the Fed redefined its targets for inflation and unemployment and how do current conditions compare to those targets?As the top advisor to the chair of the Federal Reserve, define contractionary and expansionary monetary policies and explain which you advise the Fed to pursue today – given the inflation and unemployment targets versus the current rates. 2. Inflation – Winners and LosersWe often hear of inflation characterized as a bad thing, but Meyer describes both winners and losers from inflation. Give an example of one way in which you would win from unexpected inflation, and an example of one way in which you would lose from unexpected inflation.Before answering the above questions, please review this Summary of New Fed Monetary Policies. You may consult other sources as well and include them in your bibliography. WEEK 7 DISCUSSIONClassical or Keynesian?1. Classical v. Keynesian Approaches to Smoothing Business CyclesFiscal policies are the actions of Congress on spending and taxing. (Note that this is different from monetary policy, which is the action take by the Federal Reserve to change the money supply and interest rates.)a. Explain and compare the Keynesian and classical points of view on whether or not to intervene during the business cycle (an expansion = positive real GDP growth; and a recession = negative real GDP growth). b. Are we in recession today? Use today’s real GDP growth rates to explain your answer. c. As the President’s chief economist, describe the Keynesian fiscal policy you think the administration should follow given today’s economic conditions. Support your point of view using principles of Keynesian economics, as described by Mayer in Chapter 16 of “Everything Economics.” 2. What Role for Government?In Chapter 3, Wheelan describes a number of ways in which the “government is your friend” in a well-functioning society and economy. List and explain two ways that, in your everyday lives, there is a need for an effective government role in an economy.Explain how this government role does, or does not, solve a market failure such as an externality.
