WRITING ASSIGNMENT #1
The Article
Now that we have completed a good portion of Consumer Theory, it is time to identify the article you
are to review for your Writing Assignment #1.
It comes for The Economist newspaper, www.economist.com , June 26th, 2003 edition, titled Taxes and
taxis.
Here is the link:

Enjoy reading and analyzing it!
As the article is from a previous decade, you may not be able to access it by clicking. It has been
provided to you directly on the next few pages.
Reminder: The deadline to submit to both BB and TI is Friday July 1st at 5pm.
Comments:
Yes, this article is from the past … some of you might even call it the “distant past”! Nevertheless, you
can still provide an ECO 200 analysis of it.
It is suggested that you not spend time on analyzing changes in the taxi market since the article was
written e.g., new providers such as Uber. Instead, take what is given in the article and work with it.
The article also makes mention of macroeconomic effects; as this is a microeconomics course, it is
suggested you focus on the latter!
