Understanding finance begins by reading reputable articles in newspapers/magazines such as the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Forbes, Fortune, US News and World Report, and other web based resources.
Find an article that interests you and write 3 paragraphs. Your format should be:
- INTRODUCTION: Briefly introduce the article (author, date) and the major financial topic it attempts to address (bankruptcy, merger, financial crisis, financial literacy, a specific company).
- MAJOR TAKEAWAYS: Discuss the 3-5 points the article made about the financial topic.
- CONCLUSION: What did you learn about finance and did the article address the question it posed?
- Include APA CITATION at the end of the post.
