Chapter 2 - Section 1: Analysis of Issue
 
 

The Analysis of Issue question asks you to discuss your opinion toward an issue. You will need to write a well-balanced analysis of the issue the test presents to you.

The most common topics relate to general business and public policy issues. Business issues include business ethics, marketing and labor. Government issues include regulatory and social welfare issues.

 
  • Here is an example of an Analysis of Issue question:

    The desire of corporations to maximize profits creates conflict with the general welfare of the nation at large.

    Discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the opinion stated above. Support your views with reasons and/or examples from your own experience, observations or reading.

    A typical Analysis of Issue topic may be something like:
  • Does lowering tax rates increase economic growth?
  • Should countries sacrifice civil liberties for safety?
  • Should countries limit free trade to protect their industry?
