EFB336 International Economics, Sem.2 2021
Group assignment (35% of final mark)
This assignment requires you to write a report about a research article on a current research topic in
International Economics. You need to
(i)
summarize the author(s) arguments,
(ii)
explain how the authors provide evidence to support their arguments, and
(iii)
identify strengthens and possible shortcomings.
The marking guide (CRA) is included below with more specific details. Please note that you are not
expected to understand the details of the articles nor to describe them in detail. The aim is to get a
better understanding of the arguments and methods used and how such articles can be used to inform
policy debates. You are welcome to look for additional literature (if so, please include references). The
length of the report should be 2000 words excluding references (please record the word count at the
end of your synopsis).
Topics: The four (4) papers that groups will be allocated for this year’s assignment are:
1. Federico J. Díez, Jiayue Fan, Carolina Villegas-Sánchez, Global Declining Competition? Journal of
International Economics, Volume 132, 2021, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jinteco.2021.103492.
2. Bradley Setzler, Felix Tintelnot, The Effects of Foreign Multinationals on Workers and Firms in the
United States, The Quarterly Journal of Economics, Volume 136, Issue 3, August 2021, Pages 1943–
1991, https://doi.org/10.1093/qje/qjab015
3. Joseph S Shapiro, The Environmental Bias of Trade Policy, The Quarterly Journal of Economics,
Volume 136, Issue 2, May 2021, Pages 831–886, https://doi.org/10.1093/qje/qjaa042

Estimated with Domestic Trade Flows), CESifo Working Paper No. 9057, The Variation of Gravity
within Countries (or 15 Reasons Why Gravity Should Be Estimated with Domestic Trade Flows) |
Publication | CESifo
The topics have been allocated randomly using the above numbering (see below). The report must be
submitted by October 10 (11.59pm).
Reflection on Teamwork (5% of the final mark)
This task requires you, as a group, to provide a written reflection on the teamwork processes within
your group. The ability to perform as part of an effective team is a skill that will help you to succeed later
in the workplace. Reflecting on your teamwork experience will help you to articulate what you can take
away from this teamwork assessment item and apply in your future.
Task: After that your group submitted the report (deadline: 10 October 2021), meet as a team one last
time to discuss and reflect on the following aspects of your teamwork experience, and what you’ve
learned from it as a group. Address the following two questions in approximately 300 words or one
page.
1. What steps did you take to ensure that your team completed the group assessment item and
performed well?
2. What advantages and challenges did you encounter when working on the Group Report as a
team, and what have you learned about working as a team?
When writing this reflective piece as a team, keep in mind that the focus should be on you’ve learned
about working together rather than on what you’ve learned about the content addressed in your
synopsis. Support your answers to the two questions above with specific examples from your teamwork
experience where appropriate. Given the word restriction, you’ll need to select only the most influential
aspects of your team experience to discuss as you answer the two questions above.
Please submit your reflection by 17 October 2021. A separate submission point in Blackboard will open
on 11 October for this.
