We have a regular reader named Ronald J and he’s a college student. He has a 10-page paper to complete for his microeconomics class and his initial choice is to do it about Saab.
He can choose to write about Saab from one of the following perspectives:
1. Economic Foundations
3. Supply and Demand schedules
4. Government & Taxes
5. Externalities and Public Goods
6. Consumer Choice
7. Demand and Supply Schedule Elasticities
8. Production & Costs
9. Perfect Competition
11. Monopolistic Competition
Personally, if the parameters of the paper allow it, my advice would be to take the auto industry as a whole and write about consumer choice. There’s plenty of raw data at hand for that combination. But that’s just me.
If you’ve got some thoughts (and more importantly, some microeconomic expertise) then Ronald would appreciate any suggestions you might care to make.
