Paper assignment

Power and the Market

Due: March 1st in class

Compare the criticisms made of the capitalist/free market system in the readings and film in Weeks 4 and 5.  How does power, defined broadly, affect the workings of the market? 

Note: you have to understand both the film, the articles, and the novel—the entire novel—to write a good paper. If you only cite material from the first 150 pages of the novel, or the first 30 minutes of the film, for example, I’m going to notice and your grade is going to suffer.

Your paper should be roughly 1500 words, double-spaced, with one-inch margins, stapled or paper-clipped. I will grade it in large measure on the degree to which it directly engages the novel and film. For more information on how I will grade your paper, see this link.
