This is a CLC assignment.
The recent merger of US Air with American Airlines received both national and local attention. The U.S. Department of Justice contested the merger on the basis that it would produce harmful monopoly-like behavior in many airline markets.
Your group will be assigned a position to debate in advance. Develop an argument, either in defense of the merger or in opposition to the merger. Conduct research and base your arguments on the economic content discussed in Topics 2 and 3.
Develop a PowerPoint presentation with the following requirements:
- A maximum of 10 slides
- All slides consist of bullet points (do not attempt to write everything on your slide, but include explanatory notes and information on the “notes” section of the PowerPoint slides)
At the completion of the assignment, we will have a “mock trial” in class. Selected groups will present their case for the prosecution and for the defense. The remainder of the class will constitute the jury, and decide which case was more convincing upon the conclusion of the trial.
While APA format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.
Refer to “CLCGradingChecklist,” prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
You are not required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite.
