Public Policy – Economics and Health Reading Summaries

Question Description

I’m trying to learn for my Communications class and I’m stuck. Can you help?


A QC is a 3-4 page (single spaced) summary, commentary, and question(s) of the assigned readings for the class period/topic. You should summarize each reading for that class period/topic (you do not need to summarize any popular press readings). Each article summary should be approximately 1 paragraph (be concise). This is your chance to demonstrate that not only did you do the readings, but you can cull out the major elements of the readings and make connections between readings. After the summaries, you should write a brief commentary that includes reactions to the readings, connections you see between the readings, and/or concerns you have about the readings (arguments against, etc.). This section will be 1-2 pages. Finally, you should pose questions—questions you still have after completing the readings, questions about connections, theoretical questions, etc. This section is incredibly important as I will use your comments to guide our discussions.

Other important information for the assignment:

4 points for summary

5 points for commentary

1 point for questions

2. Each QC should be typed and proofread. Also, don’t forget to put your name and the class topic at the top of the QC (just to make sure that you didn’t post to the wrong assignment post).

3. You do not need a title page or reference page (unless you are citing material not covered in class).

4. Make sure to follow APA format rules—12 point font, Times New Roman, 1” margins on each side.

No pologarizm

Every article has main idea try to find that main idea and what they found about it. DON’T USE ABSTRACT.

I will add the articles and an example of how to do it.

Kris Inman COM 705 QC #16 (for Monday, April 23rd) Public Policy – Economics and Health Reading Summaries Zoller (2008) Zoller makes a strong case in this chapter in regard to the influence of global economic and trade agreements on public health. Though perhaps not immediately obvious, the ways in which these agreements “privilege market efforts over the normative foundation that supports public health efforts” (p. 392) is conclusively presented by Zoller. Essentially, Zoller makes the point that the rising power of these market-based policies are encouraging the WHO to disregard comprehensive approaches to social change in favor of more discrete, individualistic campaigns. Looking at critical theorists, she effectively points out the way that things like poverty and pollution, having been tied to health and disease, are treated
