Project: Economics is dedicated to providing and discussing quality coverage of economic and general finance stories on WikiTribune. For related Projects go to ‘See Also’ below. Guidelines, tips, and ideas are all mutable so please edit and improve. You can pitch ideas on the TALK page, or for more topical issues, on the Daily News Agenda.
Rough guidelines and tips:
- If reporting on the impact of a subject, consider this from the mindset of the reader and their everyday life
Existing stories could be enhanced by economic factors, e.g. the refugee crisis in Myanmar and the plans for pipelines through their area. (see this story) — economic advantages often drive politics, but require lots of fact checking to uncover.
