Media Journal Assignment Instructions

incorporating external sources is not necessary, but if you did/do, please cite them in APA format. I am not picky, just want to see effort if you decide to incorporate a source or two into your essay. You can Google “Purdue Owl APA” to find their APA formatting site. Again, the only area that should be cited is the essay, not the journal.

Economics response

Read the following article and answer the questions below:

Here are the discussion questions following your reading of the article “Cow’s Milk Found in Breast Milk Sold Online” by Shuka Kalantari.

1. Market is buyers and sellers transacting with one another. A market in breast milk, a precious commodity, is developing and expanding. The internet offers a new platform for these transactions. Consider the following two events and their impact on the market:

(a) New scientific studies demonstrate the numerous health benefits of breast milk for babies and mothers.

(b) Technological progress allows more premature babies to survive.

How do these two effects affect the market? What should happen to the price of breast milk? (Hint: think of the supply and demand diagram.)

2. Milk banks such as Mother’s Milk Bank in San Jose accept donations from moms (i.e. moms donating milk are not paid), pasteurize the breast milk and sell it. Yet milk banks are running out of milk. Why? What solution would you propose?

3. Ms. Sakamoto of the Mother’s Milk Bank notes that studies show that breast milk sold on the breast milk markets risks being contaminated with cow milk etc. She says that “these studies show that if moms are paid for their breast milk, these are the kind of problems we will see.” Do you agree with Ms. Sakamoto? Explain using economic thinking.

4. How would you solve problem of contamination risk in the breast milk market?

Right to Counsel


The right to counsel exists under the Sixth Amendment. The way in which that right applies to indigent defendants has been the subject of extensive litigation. Roots of the modern right to counsel for indigent defendants date back more than a century. Understanding line-drawing is very important. The line-drawing has evolved over time. A key starting point in determining when the right attaches is understanding what constitutes a critical stage. From there, an indigency determination must be made by the court within Sixth Amendment parameters.

In your main response, address the following:

  1. Summarize how the right to counsel has evolved at the state and federal levels through court interpretation of the Sixth Amendment.
  2. Explain the implications of failing to comply with the Sixth Amendment during a critical stage of the case process.
  3. Illustrate how philosophical underpinnings and public policy influenced the U.S. Supreme Court in key Sixth Amendment right-to-counsel decisions.
