Extra Credit Books
You may read a popular economics book for extra credit. Write a short paper telling me
about what the book discusses and what you think about it. Your paper should convince me
that you've read the book and that you've thought critically about its content. I will assign
0-10 extra credit points. Your paper must be turned in before you take your third test.
