You are writing an academic paper which should demonstrate critical analytical skills. Personal stories should not be included.
The objective of this exam is for you to develop and articulate your own views by engaging the perspectives, and arguments of other people/existing literature.
Proper citation of the evidence that you use from the readings and/or other materials is mandatory. This helps you to avoid plagiarism, which is very important in academic writing. Generally, citations are required when you make assertions and strong arguments. Failure to cite at all in the text (your exam paper) will result in an F grade.
You are required to draw your analysis from at least eight authentic sources (avoid using a dictionary and class lectures as a source), for example, it could be the reports of the government agencies, credible and established newspapers, published articles, books, etc. You must provide all the references you cited in your exam/paper. Do not include references that you did not cite in your exam/paper.
Repeating the same source in the next paragraphs will not count as a minimum required citation.
You are strongly encouraged not to use/cite direct quotes instead paraphrase them properly. This is highly essential for academic writing.
Good writing is essential to doing well. All writing assignments will be graded on their structure, writing, and content including originality, clarity, coherence, logic, grammar, and spelling.
Length: 6 pages (minimum requirement) and 8 (pages maximum), double-spaced text, 12pt Times New Roman, 1-inch margins. Provide appropriate paragraph breaks but no spaces between paragraphs.
You must use APA or ASA referencing style only and be consistent.

(c) Finally, suggest what alternative synthesis can be drawn from these two macro-level theoretical perspectives to understand and address income and wealth inequality in the United States?
Everything uploaded should be used as a source, but outside sources are okay too.
