Research Paper: Literature Review, Data Sources

Your assignment is to write a research paper on the 2007-2010 financial crises: exploring causes, comparing similar events in history, determining implications and policy responses, exploring international aspects.

This assignment is a "Literature Review," using scholarly or peer-reviewed journal articles to get the views of academic economists or other professionals on the subject.  You must also find quantitative data sources to support arguments you make in support of your thesis.  Use the tabs above in this guide to find helpful sources and suggestions on how to use them.

I would be very happy to meet with you on an individual or group basis to help you with search strategies on your specific topic: just use my contact information here to contact me for an appointment.
