Weekly Critical Commentaries (CCs)
Students are required to submit every week in lecture, a critical commentary (2 pages double-space, 12 point font, Times New Roman, 1 inch margins all around) on any one (or more) of the assigned readings for that week.
The commentary should provide:
? a succinct summary of what you think are the most important points from the chapter;
? a personal argument about / opinion of those;
? at the end of the commentary, a question for discussion (based on the reading) which does not have a right or wrong answer, does not ask for clarification or factual information, but instead invites us to think critically and creatively.
choose one of the required readings:
? George, S. (1999). A Short History of Neoliberalism: Twenty Years of Elite Economics and Emerging Opportunities for Structural Change. Conference on Economic Sovereignty in a Globalising World. Bangkok, 24-26 March, 1999.
