You may choose any topic from the list but don?t restrict yourself to just these topics / articles.The instructions on how to write the assignment and how to submit it are in unit outline; however in addition see below a few more instruction.1. You can decide to choose a topic of your own and the list below will provide you with examples of the issues you should be looking at but again feel free to consider other issues that you may particularly interested in and think can relate to what we are studying in Economic principles. Please check with your tutor the topic/ article first to see that it is suitable.2. Since the essay has to have a range of references you will need to research other articles that are on the same topic.3. In writing the essay you MUST include some QUOTES from the various articles. These are taken word for word from the article and are put in your essay in inverted commas. You would then write your comments and explanations about the quotes you have used.4. In week 8 you should give your tutor an outline of the essay (a maximum of 1 page). The outline should give detail of the main points, what data and diagrams you are going to use and especially detail about the Conclusions you are going to explain (See the unit outline to understand what needs to be in the Conclusions ? and what is NOT to be included as a conclusion ? take SPECIAL care with this to see you have put the correct material in your Conclusions section. If you are not very clear about what is required then ask your tutor. The outline is more than a plan and should be a full page of information.MICROECONOMICS TOPICSPerth housing markethttp://www.watoday.com.au/wa-news/median-house-price-to-top-melbournes-20130630-2p4xd.htmlElectricity priceshttp://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-05-09/utility-price-rises-set-for-july/4680022Solar powerhttp://www.solarchoice.net.au/blog/solar-power-worth-it-perth-wa/Sugar priceshttp://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-06-06/nrn-seeds-of-change-in-global-sugar-outlook/4737606Iron ore priceshttp://www.smh.com.au/business/china-warns-of-weak-iron-ore-prices-20130610-2nzut.htmlPerth rental markethttp://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/-/wa/17964549/rent-rises-unlikely-agents/Tax on tabaccohttp://www.theage.com.au/federal-politics/federal-election-2013/treasurer-confirms-plan-to-balance-budget-with-cigarette-tax-20130801-2r0r4.htmlElectric carshttp://www.theguardian.com/environment/2012/dec/29/electric-car-sales-pricesK Mart case studyhttp://www.abc.net.au/4corners/stories/2013/06/25/3785918.htmMACROECONOMICS TOPICSFiscal policyhttp://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-05-14/budget-2013-winners-and-losers/4689252Interest rateshttp://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-07-02/interest-rate-decision/4793842Unemploymenthttp://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-07-11/unemployment-figures-for-june/4813876Exchange rateshttp://news.theage.com.au/breaking-news-business/aussie-exchange-rates-best-for-decades-20100305-pob7.htmlAssignment :Due at the start of your Lecture in Week 11.TopicElectricity priceshttp://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-05-09/utility-price-rises-set-for-july/4680022This assignment is an assessment worth 25%.
