I am currently doing the homework for Lesson 1 of the Live Online Course. I've just completed the Premise and Conclusion Analysis Drill and had further trouble with question 6 on p. 1-55 of the course book. I've even read the explanation in the book to better understand why the argument was not a valid argument, but all it said that just because unemployment shot up after the implementation of the policies does not mean the policies caused the bump in unemployment. For this to be a valid argument, does this stimulus have to have a premise that shows the connection between unemployment and the policy and how the policy affects unemployment in a way that brings it up? Is that the premise that this stimulus is currently lacking?
