Article One: “Major Shift in Economic Policy Planned” by Watt N., BBC. 2016.
The article titled “Major Shift in Economic Policy Planned” by Watt proposes a new economic policy by an incoming Chancellor. After his election in 2016, the new Birmingham Chancellor Phillip Hammond acknowledged that the British economic struggles were associated with irresponsive economic policies that suffocated the country’s domestic economic boost. As such, he sought for an interventionist approach to regenerate the nation’s economic ability. The article embarks on an explorative analysis under segmented structures that provided a flow from introduction to conclusion. The purpose of the study exemplifies its need and relevance to the study course under economic policy topic. The author undertakes a theoretical analysis of his subject’s proposed policy, which is built into the concepts of an Economic Policy subject. Therefore, the article is directly related to the topic of economic policy under Markets and Financial Institutions.
The article addresses an interventionist approach to averting a fallen economic production of the nation. Through the eyes of a new Chancellor, Philip Hammond, and Prime Minister, Theresa May, the author disputes previously used policies in favor of new economic policies. He explains the pre-2016 economic instability in the UK as partially caused by an unresponsive monetary policy. Through the views of the chancellor and the prime minister, the monetary theory had its contraction policy stretched to the point of undermining economic growth instead of promoting it. As the chairman of the policy board, George Freeman argued that the Prime Minister is within her authority to raise concerns on the nonperforming economic policies employed by the Bank of England. In her speech, the Prime Minister argued that monetary policies with unresponsive interest rates had immense side effects, which undermined the nation’s economic growth; therefore, calling for a change of such policies.
The article further explains the PM’s call for a redefinition of the nation’s economic policies. It proposes a future approach and reconsideration of restructuring tax policies for the better good of the economy. The focus would see the economy recover from the Mrs. Osborne-led monetary policy that has impacted the economy retrogressively. In addition, the article alludes to the fiscal responsibility of the previous monetary policy that has misled the nation into an economic ditch. Therefore, such shortcomings demand the disposal of existing policy as desired by the PM.
The greatest issue of interest in the article is the author’s approach to the new policy. Moreover, the author’s inclusion of theoretical analysis in the article builds its scholarly compatibility. It creates a theoretical relation between the federal banks and the economy. As such, PM emphasizes that the intermediary role of the government would only follow a clear economic path created by the Bank of England as the monetary body. The author pegs the success of the policy on the induction by the Bank of England. This concept echoes the Keynesian theory with regard to principles of interest rate and asset acquisition for the bank and the economy. The article’s relational interpretation of these factors places a desirable interpretation of the fiscal and monetary principles learned in class. Thus, the article is not only interesting in its experimental explanation of the economic theories but it also empirically incorporates the basic principles of the topic.
The writer also adopts an illustrative method that identifies a study objective and creates a theoretical perspective for the study objective. By acknowledging the existing policy problem, Watt builds on the need for a new policy by explaining the defects in the current policy. As such, the article proposes an interventionist status as claimed by the author. With no quantitative inference, the qualitative approach adopted distinctively interprets the concepts of the article, thereby confirming its illustrative purpose.
The article also fits the use as a scholarly source due to its educative approach. It introduces its problem, identifies the causes, and proposes the solution. As such, the structure of the paper fits the basic principles of reviewable articles. Also, the writer incorporates relevant theories that create an educative approach, which makes it useful for study. Watt’s experimental distinction between Keynesian and monetary theories with regard to tax rates and consumption gives a realistic analysis of the article; therefore, fitting its use as an academic paper.
Concisely, in response to its corrective quest, the author builds on his subjects’ proposal of an interventionist policy that would realize deficit reduction by creating flexible taxes and pending schemes. Led by the new Chancellor, the PM directs the policy board to put in place a model for the new economic package. Among other things desired in the new policy, the PM looks up to a fair redistribution of national wealth. Other issues include the independence of the Bank of England and unrestricted interest rates. The new proposal placed the bank’s governor and the chancellor at the center of the new development. The new policy would work under a Keynesian model hence being responsive to market changes under least government intervention. Therefore, the article provides a methodological, theoretical, and scholarly relevance as desired by the study principles.
Article Two: China-US Trade Talks; the Main Differences by Mitchell, T. Financial Times, 2019.
The article titled “China-US Trade Talks; the Main Differences” by Mitchell explores the international market’s relationship between China and the US. The two nations have engaged in a series of market negotiations due to the stiff differences in tariffs, taxes, and entry modes. The article explains the conflicting terms between the trading partners, including irreconcilable issues that drag their market agreements. The writer takes after US-China trade disputes that arose after the US called for reconsideration of Chinese imports that were accused of undermining US companies. Thus, the author builds an analytical study on the main points of difference between the negotiating parties that undermine their implementation.
The most interesting issue about the article is its articulation of the most recent international market disputes. Mitchell addresses the international market relations using the most recent examples easily understandable by learners. His choice to align the article on subtitles makes it easy to read through and understand. Besides, the article begins with the most conspicuous issues, which descend to the least in a manner that places the nation and international market’s interest on an equal platform. As crafted from a primary secession paper developed between the market partners, the article explains to the public the hidden issues of the China and US international market agreements discussed in their previous meetings. Therefore, the article reports the market disputes issues in the eyes of the US and China respectively.
The articles take the form of an informal report that incorporates both categorized findings and essay analysis. The author introduces the article with a reflection of parties’ demands and causation of their differences, which disrupted their earlier meetings. Led by the Chinese Vice Premier, Lie He, and US Trade Representative. Robert, the author creates his points around the intended next meeting with a review of past reports. As such, instead of reporting directly from the negotiation body, the author builds his argument around self-owned issues, which he thinks caused the misunderstanding between the parties. Like other analytical studies, the author creates his argument on realistic market issues, which represent the challenges faced in the international market. Therefore, the author’s method takes after reflective studies that illuminate the general international market relations.
Mitchell calls for a reduction of the trade deficit as the first issue on the table. In reaction, China appeals to increase its importation of US products such as soybeans, machinery, electronics, semi conducts among other products and services. However, the two parties contradict each other on the scale and timing of the exports/imports. The author raises concern on the control of their partnership trade, which alludes to the fact that increased control of the market would only benefit state-associated companies at the expense of a free market system. Nonetheless, this issue has a high chance of meeting the demands of the two parties through their consent.
The article also highlights the need to strength the intellectual property rights protection, stop economic subsidies that distort free market operations, and state-sponsored cyber intrusion. The governments also want to reduce policies and other international market barriers and have periodical reviews on the operations of the business. According to the author, addressing these issues would enable an amicable international market practice between the US and China. Thus, the author markets his rhetoric presentation as a gesture of the matters that the negotiation committee should address in the interest of market growth for the concerned countries and other global partners.
The article makes a logical assessment of the international market by reviewing the trade standoff between the US and China. By focusing on issues that should be addressed, the author creates a reflection of the generation international maker. The issues like reduction of deficit and strengthening of the intellectual property rights give an experimental review of the challenges that the global businesses face in the international market. For instance, by questioning the role of the trade scale in the trade deficit, the author gives an impressive review of how nations undermine free trade in the international market. Besides raising allegations such as regarding a state-sponsored cyber intrusion, the article educates the public on international market operations. Therefore, it is fit for academic review since it directly responds to international trade as a topic.
Concisely, the article creates an opportunity for the readers to assess the challenges that stakeholders face in the international market. The issues discussed illuminate the real challenges faced in state-sponsored international trade. The article highlight trade deficit, property right protection, cyber instruction, disruptions of markets using unwarranted subsidies, and lack of proper policies as the key issues to be addressed in the US-China trade standoff. The author also argues for the need for periodical review of the terms highlighted to facilitate an amicable international market. The topic’s relevance to the principles of market and financial institutions gives the article an upper hand; therefore, it has a theoretical and scholarly purpose for the study.
