The 2016 presidential election brought many different types of possible candidates into the spotlight. Candidates like Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Gary Johnson, and Bernie Sanders have different views of the economy and how to go about implementing effective economic policy. Choose a few candidates and discuss their views on the economy and economic policy. Throughout the discussion, consider and integrate economic theory that was learned during class and show the reader that you understand how economic models work and apply them in a way that allows the reader to view the candidates’ economic policy recommendations through them. If you are not a citizen of the USA and would like to write about political leaders in your home country, then the instructor welcomes it.
