Your job is to summarize a special report from The Economist published in last 3 years (2020, 2019, or 2018). The
special report you choose must be about globalization, trade, or any international issue. If you’re not sure, choose a
report and email me. To get started, do the following:
- Visit http://www.economist.com/printedition/specialreports and scroll through the special reports, choose one
report about globalization, trade, or any international issue.
- Read every article in the report. If you don’t have a subscription to The Economist, then you’ll only be able
to access a few articles a week. This is why it is crucial to start printing and reading the articles in the report
as early as possible.
- Write the paper as follows: Your paper should have three sections: Introduction, Summary and Analysis and
should be 1500 words (that’s about 5 pages).
In the Introduction (150 words) you should outline the importance of the topic and what issues the report talks
Introduce the report (title, date of publication, and publication title) and provide a brief motivation of why
this is an important or timely report. Why is this interesting not only to economists, but to individuals, or
institutions? Discuss the big picture and the report’s general direction or opinion on the matter.
Linguist Noam Chomsky, built upon this idea of a contributing genetic factor to human language suggesting “that our language is the result of the unfolding of a genetically determined program” which begins with an innate ability to understand grammatical structures, coined as “Universal Grammar” (Deacon, 1997). Chomsky suggests that “language acquisition devices” in developing brains aid children in navigating subject-object rules, appropriate syntax, and pragmatic semantics of all human languages. The appeal in the idea of Chomsky’s language “organ” is that it eliminates the discontinuity between human and NHA communication styles offering a single-step evolutionary account for the failure of other species in acquiring language, an ultimate discrepancy in separating humans from NHA. While parallels can be made between certain facets of linguistics between humans and NHA, such as learned dialects of birdsong with differing human vernaculars, these parallels exhibit a superficial resemblance to language learning in NHA and lack coordinated rules that exist within the human language system- the syntax, grammar, design, symbolism, and semantics- that drive our existence forward (Deacon, 1997). The ability to ask the question “what is a human?” is only possible due to our harness on the complexity of language, a grip so developed that we can ask the question of our existence to ourselves. It is hard to imagine a bird reflecting on its inherent “birdness”, but our ability to question our existence drives our understanding of humanness, therefore suggesting that language is the key differentiating factor between humans and NHA.>GET ANSWER
