Marco, I'm concerned that the "economists' opinions" might make this article inappropriate for a commentary. After all, you're the only economist whose opinions we want to read in a commentary. Does this article already to the analysis and evaluation for you? Make sure it does NOT. What graphs could you use in this commentary? Which topics from the syllabus will you cover?
