Or, if there is another side to this story outline that argument. Or, propose an alternative explanation or alternative solution, to the one proposed in the article. This section is intended to be another application of an economic theory. You may wish to use the theory reviewed and applied in parts (2) and (3) or you may wish to base this discussion on another economic concept.
