**Please complete the following and answer all the questions listed below. Remember to cite your source as well, properly! No plagiarism – I WILL CHECK FOR IT! Please make sure the news article has been published in the last 12 months and it meets the following criteria. I will dispute it if this is incorrect!
Go to the Internet and find a news article published in the last 12 months that discusses a potential positive or negative externality and a proposed regulation to deal with it. Summarize key points in your initial discussion post. Be sure to use the concepts and frameworks we are covering this week.
- What externality is this regulation attempting to address? Is it a positive or negative externality?
- What is the current policy being used? Is there an alternative policy approach that may work better/worse (taxes or subsidies, for example) and why? How effectively does the current policy appear to be?
Note: Focus on the “third party” effects of increasing a positive externality or decreasing a negative externality – not, for example, on any “third party” financial effects of collecting a tax or of spending the revenue generated by the tax.
- Reflection – the students also should include a paragraph in the initial response in their own words reflecting on specifically what they learned from the assignment and how they think they could apply what they learned in the workplace.
