Economic Policy brief

Policy is based on the WORKFORCE INNOVATION AND OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 2022 H.R 7039.

OVERVIEW
The purpose of this assignment is to apply the May, Can, Should model through analysis of a
specific U.S. economic or budgetary policy. An effective tool for finding this legislation is
through www.govtrack.us and the cost of the legislation throu-gh the Congressional Budget
Office at www.cbo.gov.

INSTRUCTIONS
For the analysis, this is best done in the following manner:
May
Application of the Biblical principles – when discussing the topic of the week, make sure
to apply the Biblical principles discussed in question 1 of the Synthesis paper to the specific
policy that you’re discussing. How does it meet natural law, inalienable rights, federalism, etc.?
Constitutional authority – what is the Constitutional authority for the federal government
to get involved? Avoid the use of the General Welfare clause as it becomes a catch-all for
anything that a politician wants to get passed.

Can
Political feasibility – what is the likelihood that the policy will become law? What is the
political and social support for the policy?
Financial feasibility – what is the policy expected to do to the national debt or spending?
For example, the new COVID stimulus just put us another $2 trillion in debt but was widely
supported by both politicians and the public.
Practical feasibility – what are the logistical resources needed for implementation
(buildings, personnel, new programs, etc.) and what are the steps for implementation (ex; the
Affordable Care Act needed functional websites in order to be implemented, the lack of these
created severe problems with implementation).

Should
Relate this back to specific Biblical and Constitutional authorities and discuss whether or
not the policy should be supported based on this and the feasibility of implementation.
The goal of this is to critically analyze an economic policy to objectively determine if the
federal government should be legitimately involved in the policy being discussed and if the
policy is right for the country.

You are expected to submit a 1 1/2–2-page paper (not including the title page, abstract, and
reference page) in current APA format in which the May-Can-Should model is applied in the
context of the policy focus. Be certain to emphasize a focused analysis of a particular federal
policy (either already implemented or proposed) chosen from the policy concentration area for
the assigned module.

You must include citations from:
1. all of the required reading and presentations from the assigned module/week
2. all relevant sources from Module 1: Week 1 and Module 2: Week 2 (you MUST use the
“Biblical Principles of Government” article), and
PADM 550

3–5 outside sources. NOTE: These sources should be focused on the problem and the
piece of legislation, and you may find that you need more than just 3-5 sources to
adequately research and discuss these items.
3. Please feel free to use the link provided in the assignment resources for the purposes of
additional research.
Please ensure that you review and follow the provided Policy Brief Template found in these
assignment resources.
