Project Overview: 

AP Macroeconomics students researched developing nations to find room for growth for each country. Once the students understood their country's standing, they constructed economic plans for development. They built all of their own measures, thought outside the box, and truly delivered a masterpiece of student work. Their publication highlights moments in each country's history that led to their current situation. All of the graphs, charts, and equations are student-produced unless cited. The text was professionally published to exemplify the quality of work produced by students and includes an extensive bibliography. 

Please download the two selections provided here on Mexico and the UAE to fully appreciate this student work.
