Bleg an Assignment Bleg

Greg Mankiw posted a bleg (a blog post designed to elicit feedback/advice) that started with this fantastic line:
I need some help from the growth empiricists out there. If you aren't one of them, stop reading. Continuing will be a waste of your time.
As someone who has read some of the empirical growth literature to which he refers, but has not contributed, I still found the post to be really interesting.

More to the point of the post, as someone who is currently teaching a course for undergraduates entitled Honors Econometrics (technically: Introduction to Econometrics: Honors), wouldn't a guided replication of one (or parts of all) of the papers Mankiw links in his update (one, two, three) be a cool assignment?
