Assignment (Parts 1 & 2)
Either individually or in groups, look for a law the government has enacted that is intended to promote some good (e.g. public safety, improved standards of living, etc.). Keeping in mind that all things are scarce and that all choice involve tradeoffs, think about how enforcing the law alters people's incentives.

Once you have a law to look at, complete the following tasks:
1) Appealing to incentives, can you make an argument for why the law might end up achieving the opposite of its intended purpose?
2) Conduct further research to see whether or not the law achieved its intended purpose.
