Essay Questions

Essay question:

Students are required to write a formative academic essay of 800 words, answering one of the following essay questions, in academic essay format, drawing on the ideas and concepts taught in this unit::

1. Why are intellectual property and competition laws central issues for Australia’s free trade agreements?

2. Should the Commonwealth take over responsibility for funding roads in Australia? Why or why not?

3. Who will benefit most from the ACT Government’s proposed investment of some $800 million in Capital Metro, a light rail system? How? Why?

4. It is becoming increasingly difficult for government to fund TAFEs and universities at current levels and the funding model will need to change in the near future. With this in mind, should students or businesses pay more to support tertiary education in Australia? Why?

5. Mr Fluffy, a home insulation business, used loose-fill asbestos products in more than 1,000 homes in Canberra. A national ban of asbestos was enacted in December 2003. The ACT Government established the Loose Fill Asbestos Insulation Eradication Scheme in 2014 to compensate affected home-owners. Should taxpayers be responsible for compensating home owners affected by Mr Fluffy? Why or why not?

Students are to use at least 5 different sources (references) to provide at least 5 different in-text references in their essay. At least one reference is to be a journal article. Students are to write the essay in full prose, using appropriate paragraphs (approximately 100-150 words each paragraph), and a variety of high quality, academic sources (references) in order of quality from highest to lowest as follows:

1. Academic journal articles;
2. Academic books, including edited books;
3. Reports from international institutions such as the OECD and World Bank;
4. News media articles;
5. Government websites; and
6. Websites from businesses, industry groups, consumer groups or professional bodies

A reference list (a list of the references actually cited in-text) must be included as part of the essay (separate files will not be accepted). The reference list must use a recognised scholarly referencing system using the author/date format. All information relating to the reference is to be included – if you cannot find the year of publishing or the author, then it is probably not an appropriate academic reference. Page numbers are required for in-text references
