1,250-word count minimum with three scholarly sources in APA format. Q1 is a three-part question and can be answered fully using information from the Read and Attend sections. Parts 1 and 2 are asking about specific ethical and legal issues and will require documentation (in-text citations and references) showing where you are using information from the assigned material. Part 3 is asking for your recommendations/opinion. Documentation is not required for that, but supporting evidence can strengthen any argument.
Writing tip: A separate paragraph for each part of a multi-part question like this can be a useful organizer.
Q2 – Q4 all need very current outside sources.
There are required sources for Q2 and Q4 in the Unit 2 Course Materials section. Along with the book, they will count as sources to meet the minimum requirements.
Q2 – Q4 ask everyone to take a position on specific issues. The stakeholder orientation that we used in the Unit 1 discussion can be a useful way to frame these questions; it can help show whether the benefits of your position outweigh the benefits of another position, or vice versa. Arguments that show both sides of an issue will always be stronger than those that don’t. As in the discussion, scoring will depend more on the evidence you provide to support your position, than on what your opinions and recommendations are……………

4. Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform (Dodd-Frank)
Dodd-Frank has been in the news since it was passed in 2010, with some arguing that it imposes too great a burden on financial institutions, and others arguing that it does not go far enough to prevent the “too big to fail” scenario that we saw in the recent financial crisis.
Research the current state of the law and answer the following:
1) What is the current state of executive orders and/or legislation regarding Dodd-Frank? What changes to the original bill have been made or are in the legislative pipeline?
2) Does Dodd-Frank currently strike the right balance? If so, explain. If not, describe the changes that should be made to the law.
