Discussion Board Forums throughout this course. Each thread must be at least 300 words and
contain a minimum of 3 citations in current APA format. Acceptable sources include newspapers,
periodicals, journals, textbooks and the Bible. Sources such as Wikipedia, About.com, book
reviews, and blogs are prohibited.
This course utilizes the Post-First feature in all Discussion Board Forums. This means you will

Topic: Labor Force Participation
Question/Prompt: “Because of the decreasing labor force participation rate
of youths and the prime age group, the overall labor force participation rate
is expected to decline. The participation rates of older workers are projected
to increase, but remain significantly lower than those of the prime age
group. A combination of a slower growth of the civilian noninstitutional
population and falling participation rates will lower labor force growth to a
projected 0.5 percent annually.” (Labor Force Projections, 2013)
In your thread, complete the following:
1.
Discuss economic theory related to the quote above. Be sure to include
a definition of Labor Force Participation Rate (LFPR) within your discussion.
2.
Locate and incorporate outside research that gives evidence and
explanation as to the possible causes of this decline. Provide an example of
the changes in labor force participation rates over the last decade.
3.
Integrate biblical insights into your thread. In what way does Scripture
influence your decision to work?

Topic: International Trade
Question/Prompt: "In 2014, “the United States exported $2.34 trillion
worth of goods and services—an all-time record. Exports from the United
States in 2014 equaled the entire gross domestic product of Brazil and
exceeded all commercial output in India, Italy, or Mexico. What is more,
exports are an increasingly important aspect of the U.S. economy.” (New top
markets series provides data, 2015)
In your thread, complete the following:
1.
Discuss economic theory related to the quote above. Be sure to include
a definition of exports and the way in which exports are counted in the
measurement of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) within your discussion.
2.
Locate and incorporate outside research that gives evidence and
explanation as to the possible causes of this growth in exports. Provide an
example of 1 particular industry or country with which export quantity has
increased.
3.
Integrate biblical insights into your thread. In what way does Scripture
influence our attitudes and actions in international trade?
