need a bit of help with my economics article:[[

Recommended Posts

Hey,

I have chosen an article about the Mexican soda tax (it was in a blog, but I think it is allowed as a source since the blog belongs to The New York Times). The problem is that the tax was introduced in January 2014, the data was collected from December 2014, an investigation was carried out in December 2015, published the findings in January 2016 and the article was published also in January 2016:D My teacher said that my article is good, but the events are too old..

 

Is this article not about "current events"? Should I choose another article?:((

 

Would love some input

Actually, I'm pretty sure it's over a year ago. 

 

And your article should be perfectly fine to use; it's date of the when it was published that counts. As long as it's less than a year, to the best of my knowledge, you're good to go.
