Background: Economists are increasingly required to work in interdisciplinary teams and engage with members of the general public to express their research findings.

In this assessment, your task is to educate a non-specialist audience about an issue of your choice pertaining to pricing data and the Australian petrol market.

You will translate your advanced academic knowledge of the economics of petrol pricing into an engaging and educating article that a member of the general public can understand and enjoy. This article could be a magazine article, longform newspaper op-ed, piece for The Economist, or similar. You can assume your audience cares about how much they’re paying when they fill up their tank, but you can’t assume they know how the economy works or the theories that an economist would use to analyse it.

Assignment task: Write an article for a popular publication to educate a non-specialist audience about an issue, debate, or future prediction pertaining to petrol pricing in the Australian market.

Although a publication like a tabloid newspaper may not include sources in real life, your submission still needs to. At least 7 academic sources are required, and should be referenced properly using a recognised academic style guide such as CMS or APA. You may also employ your quantitative results from experiments conducted in this unit if relevant.

A strong submission will take a clear stance and/or pose a clear argument related to some aspect of pricing data and the Australian petrol market.

Your article should use language appropriate to a non-specialist audience, and include thoughtful rhetorical choices designed to engage and educate them.

Please specify who your intended audience are, including a brief indication of their interests and assumed knowledge. Please also note the publication you are writing for, and anything you would like to specify about style. For example, I am writing for people who want to know why supermarkets now own petrol stations, and whether this gets in the way of a fair price. I am writing for The Daily Telegraph using an accessible tone so that people can quickly absorb my message on a daily commute or similar. This information should be placed before the heading of your main text to avoid confusion.
