For this essay, you will be evaluated on your ability to summarize new
information in a way that is clear, concise, and accurate to a professional
reader. You will need to choose a reading that was not covered in class and
provide a summary of it including information on the theory, the empirics, and
the importance/contribution of the paper. You should conclude with a “personal
thoughts” part where you discuss whether you agree with the article you chose
and their arguments or you disagree and provide a reason.
