Scholars in every academic discipline share certain expectations and norms for publication in their scholarly journals and texts. While experts and/or professionals in some disciplines uphold a strict standard of academic writing, others allow a more flexible rhetorical style. In general, academic writers strive to influence the communities of their respective discipline by following the norms.
While communities of scholars strive to ensure quality in their disciplines, they also recognize a certain level of subjectivity in determining the quality of academic writing. Analyzing each author’s quality of evidence, awareness of the target audience, and potential for personal bias will help you determine the appropriateness of books, articles, and other documents that are read.
Evaluate a scholarly article. As you review the article, consider the ways that the different backgrounds of the authors and their readers may affect both the creation and the interpretation of the writing.
In Week 2, you explored ways to search for articles. For this Assignment, search the Walden Library and select a scholarly, peer-reviewed article related to public policy and administration or in your field of interest.
Consider how different audiences might interpret the selected article. Pay particular attention to the quality of evidence that the author(s) present.
The Assignment (1–2 pages)
Summarize the article you selected.
Evaluate the quality of evidence, appropriateness of the content, and writing style for the target audience, and the author’s potential bias, if any.
Explain whether the article meets professional standards for scholarly writing and why.
Explain how different audiences (e.g., domestic vs. international perspectives) could interpret the article differently and why.
ney becoming worthless. Understandably, the negatives associated with inflation with regards to Venezuela considerably outweigh any benefits. As of January 2020, Maduro initiated an increase in the national minimum wage. The minimum monthly salary earner is currently receiving 250,000 bolivars (£2.80) , a 67% increase from the previous minimum wage – 150,000 bolivars. Alongside this, he implemented a food bonus of 200,000 bolivars (Quartz 2020) – that goes for individuals who are actually employed. It was predicted that Venezuela’s unemployment rate would have reached 50% by this year.. Venezuela’s unemployment rate – referring to the segment of the labour force actively seeking and able to undergo employment, without work – was forecasted to be 44.337% during the December period of 2019. An almost 10% increase since the year prior illustrating the apparent negative impact inflation has on employment (CEIC 2019). In the short term, individuals are likely to supply labour despite the acceleration in inflation due to the higher wages. According to the Phillips curve, inflation and unemployment maintain an inverse relationship meaning low levels of unemployment correspond to higher levels of inflation and high unemployment corresponds to lower levels of inflation – potentially deflation. Logically, this makes sense as high unemployment would put a downward pressure on prices of goods and reduce inflation. This is because a lack of income makes excess expenditure less permissive. However, in the case of Venezuela, it differs. Venezuela is undergoing extremely high inflation as well as relatively high unemployment rates. When unemployment is high, the supply for labour is traditionally greater than the demand for it, as the number of individuals seeking work significantly exceeds the number of jobs available. Therefore, increasing wages as a means of employers bidding for the service of employees is unnecessary – and so wages remain stagnant during inflation periods. As Venezuela demonstrates, an economy can encounter high inflation alongside low economic growth at one time. Several technical explanations can be proposed with regards to why the country’s economic growth is in deficit. A primary one being the concept of demand-pull inflation which comes about as a result of the demand for goods surpassing the supply available. However, no fundamental increase in aggregate demand was displayed in the case of Venezuela. Instead, the supply fell considerably short. The lack of foreign currency reserves lead to the inability t>GET ANSWER
