Often, students ask, and rightly so: "How do we write a good Economics essay?"
However, before you can answer that, you might need to know how to write a good Economics paragraph first, because paragraphs are the building blocks to create a well-crafted, well-written essay.
Let's begin with a simple exercise. Ready?
Have a look at the following sample Economics paragraphs, and think to yourself whether the paragraph is well written or not.
I would strongly recommend crafting good essay paragraphs by stating clearly what the argument is, first and foremost. After stating your argument, explain what it means by defining the terms, explaining what the process is, and explaining why you think that argument makes sense. Perhaps even draw a diagram to explain the situation, and explain the diagram itself as well to show your economics knowledge. Giving an example, you will now want to explain the example to show how it links to the theoretical content, and then you conclude by wrapping up your paragraph. If each paragraph is written consistently like this, your paper will be more detailed, well-explained, and full of rich real world examples that highlight your points.
