Behavioral economics

The future of our economy depends on the interactions of people, companies, and governments. Behavioral economics insights are crucial to understanding the choices that underpin modern microeconomics, particularly
in our COVID-19 world.
This is a short research paper assignment. From media, sources choose one topic regarding the coronavirus
that you believe affects the microeconomy and should be analyzed using behavioral-economics tools. Use the
concepts developed in this course regarding behavioral economics to analyze your topic. You will rely on the
research results of others, not your original research. Your analysis should be based on legitimate economic
research sources—not just articles from the news media. Your paper should not be just a recitation of events or
known facts—it must be analytical in content.
The paper should include an introduction, background, analysis, and conclusion sections. The analysis section is
the most important part.
