We discussed Adam Smith’s “The Wealth of Nations” today and tried to generate more research question possibilities.

Read through the article from the BRITISH JOURNAL, in preparation of our discussion on Tuesday.  Because this is a scientific paper, you will have to approach it differently.  Read the INTRODUCTION  and the CONCLUSION.  Scan the METHODOLOGY and the statistics.  Be prepared to talk about these aspects.

Come also with at least three possible research questions inspired by the stimulus package.  We shall be making decisions on the research on Tuesday.
