US Economic History Paper Hypothesis Assignment..
I need help with a Economics question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
Read the article and answer the following questions.
1. What is the general question that the article is trying to answer? That is, what is the fact or pattern that the article is trying to explain? Keep your answer to 1-2 sentences.
2. What is the authors’ specific hypothesis? That is, what are their proposed explanations for the observed fact or pattern? Keep your answer to 1-2 sentences.
3.What is the main contribution of the paper? That is, how does it advance and improve on previous literature?
4.Look at Table 1 (page 30) in the paper. How does the evidence presented in this table relate to the authors’ specific hypothesis? Discuss your reasoning.
5.Can the evidence be explained in another way? That is, is the evidence consistent with another hypothesis that the author may or may not have considered. Propose one alternative explanation for the patterns that they talk about.
Please answer each question separately rather than consolidating your answers into a single essay. Do not exceed a one page (double-spaced, 12-point font, 1 inch margins).
