Digital Disconnect: How Capitalism Is Turning The Internet Against Democracy By Robert McChesney

1 What three topics does McChesney address in this book?

2 What is Political Economy? What is the most fundamentally important determinant in this theory?

3 Why is Political Economy a method better suited for his study than what the Skeptics and the Celebrants offer?

4 What is Political Economy of Communication? What is the relationship between communication, economic resources, and political power?

5 Summarize two examples, from Chapter 3, McChesney uses to explain the connection between communication, economic resources, and political power. You might consider selecting one historical and one contemporary example.

6 Summarize two examples, from Chapter 4, that address how the openness of the Internet was closed by powerful monopolistic interests from the pre-Internet age.

7 Summarize two examples, from Chapter 5, that address how the Internet has begat new emergent monopolistic interests in the digital age.

8 Why does the Internet, according to McChesney in Chapter 6, threaten the viability of valuable public debate in journalism and what effect does that have for political power?

9 Using two contemporary media industries we’ve studied in class, discuss how you would use political economy of communication to examine these media industries? What would your analysis tell us about the relationship of political power, economic resources, and contemporary media?

10 Conclude with a discussion of whether you agree or disagree with McChesney’s method and why you think his use of political economy works (or doesn’t work) for studying contemporary media.

PICOT Question   Paper

Review your problem or issue and the study materials to formulate a PICOT question for your capstone project change proposal. A PICOT question starts with a designated patient population in a particular clinical area and identifies clinical problems or issues that arise from clinical care. The intervention used to address the problem must be a nursing practice intervention. Include a comparison of the nursing intervention to a patient population not currently receiving the nursing intervention, and specify the timeframe needed to implement the change process.  Formulate a PICOT question using the PICOT format (provided in the assigned readings) that addresses the clinical nursing problem.

The PICOT question will provide a framework for your capstone project change proposal.

In a paper of 500-750 words, clearly identify the clinical problem and how it can result in a positive patient outcome.

Describe the problem in the PICOT question as it relates to the following:

  1. Evidence-based      solution

My Personal Negotiation Experience


My Personal Negotiation Experience


People negotiate almost daily, sometimes for major things like a new job or a new car, other times for relatively minor things, such as where to go for dinner.  Negotiations occur to create something new or to resolve a problem or dispute between parties.


Characteristics common to all negotiation situations include two or more individuals, groups, or organizations, interpersonal, intragroup, or intergroup process.  There is a conflict of interest between two or more parties.  The parties negotiate because they think they can use some form of influence to get a better deal.  The parties prefer to search for agreement rather than fight openly, have one side capitulate, permanently break off contact, or take their dispute to a higher authority to resolve it.  When you negotiate, expect to give and take.  Successful negotiation involves the management of intangibles and well as the resolving of intangibles.



Reflect in detail upon a time you have had to negotiate and then write about your experience answering the questions below.  Paper must be a minimum of two pages, double spaced.


  1. Describe what you negotiated and with whom you were negotiating. Explain what each side wanted to achieve as an end result of that negotiation. *(Please help me use the example of buying something with a better deal negotiation, create one, but write a buying situation with the buyer, it can be a sofa, a TV, or an “expensive things”)



  1. How did you approach the situation? Elaborate on your strategy and give examples of how the negotiation proceeded. *(Write detail of the proceed when you are negotiate with the buyer, the previous problem)



  1. Describe the outcome of your negotiation. Identify who was successful and explain, using examples, what was achieved. *(Write that you success to get the deal and how you do that, detail)



  1. What did you learn from this negotiation? Could you have handled the negotiation differently? Explain why or why not.
