Are the authors explanations convincing, are they complete, how are you convinced, what evidence and economic reasoning is presented, is the evidence and economic reasoning strong or weak?

A critical essay should discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the authors arguments
and evidence. Are the authors explanations convincing, are they complete, how are you
convinced, what evidence and economic reasoning is presented, is the evidence and economic
reasoning strong or weak? How is it strong or weak? And so on. Dont just state an opinion.
Dissect the authors presentation. Articulate your judgments, and support them with your own
reasoning, economic ideas, and use of the authors evidence. Explain why or how you arrived at
your conclusions. Develop and elaborate your view in detail. You are not expected to be an
expert in any field, but you are expected to be able to reason. Finally, you can also use your
economic understanding (verbal and/or graphical/mathematical) to add to and develop the
authors argument as a form of critical analysis.
