ECN 360 Grand Canyon Week 6 Assignment Anti-Trust Case
This is a CLC assignment.
The recent merger of US Air with American Airlines received both national and local attention. The U.S. Department of Justice contested the merger on the basis that it would produce harmful monopoly-like behavior in many airline markets.
Your group will be assigned a position to debate in advance. Develop an argument, either in defense of the merger or in opposition to the merger. Conduct research and base your arguments on the economic principles discussed in module 2 and 3.
Develop a PowerPoint presentation with the following requirements:
- A maximum of 10 slides
- All slides consist of bullet points (do not attempt to write everything on your slide, but include explanatory notes and information on the “notes” section of the PowerPoint slides)
At the completion of the assignment, we will have a “mock trial” in class. Selected groups will present their case for the prosecution and for the defense. The remainder of the class will constitute the jury, and decide which case was more convincing upon conclusion of the trial.
This assignment uses a grading rubric. Instructors will be using the rubric to grade the assignment; therefore, students should review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the assignment criteria and expectations for successful completion of the assignment.
You are not required to submit this assignment to Turnitin.
