Thread Prompt: In this module/weeks forum, you must find a news article containing material that is relevant to microeconomics, clearly link your article to material from the textbook, then compose a thread discussing the topic per the instructions below.  The article you choose along with the textbook must be referenced in current APA format.  Acceptable research sources for your articles include newspapers, news web pages, and magazines. Sources such as Wikipedia,, book reviews, and blogs are prohibited. You may complete the required research using the  website or by searching the internet for news sources.


  • In the opening paragraph, provide a summary of the article.
  • In the second paragraph, explain an economic idea contained in the story. Specifically, refer to material from the textbook, including the page number, and note how the economic idea plays a prominent role in the story.
  • In the third paragraph, explain what you think about the events in the story. You do not have to agree with what is going on, but you do need to provide your reaction to it. This is your chance to express yourself: what are your opinions? Be sure to defend your position.
  • Finally, what do you think is a Christian response to this situation?   Provide details to support your view (in other words, do not just say Christians wouldnt act the same way as economists).
  • Be sure to title your thread according to your topic.

NOTE: This course utilizes the Post-First feature in all Discussions. This means you will only be able to read and interact with your classmates threads after you have submitted your thread in response to the provided prompt. For additional information on Post-First, click  for a tutorial.


Reply Prompt: For your replies, respond to at least two classmates threads. At least one of them must deal with a story significantly different from the one you address in your thread. You must make substantive comments about your classmates thread. Just saying I agree in one form or another is not acceptable. A good reply might include a question of clarification, a question that is relevant to the topic but was not discussed, a counterpoint to the author’s points, or a well-supported disagreement. Be sure to keep your replies civil.
