Op-ed writing assignment

Your task is to write an op-ed applying the economic way of thinking to a relevant economic or public policy issue. Op-eds are newspaper-style articles that express the opinions of a writer who is usually unaffiliated with the newspaper’s editorial board. Op-eds give an informed viewpoint on a topic that is of interest to the general public. The topic and opinion in the article are entirely up to you. I have attached the requirements for the assignment and the grading rubric.
