Take My Class

Registration is now open for Winter Study classes. Here is a very rough draft of my syllabus for ECON 18. Comments and questions welcome! Apologies for the formatting and sloppiness, but I wanted to get something out there for interested students to consider. What is the over/under on how many students will sign up? I’ll go with 10, but hope for 20.

404 not found on the syllabus!

In other news: I miss winter study so much. I wish I could take a huge percentage of the courses listed there…

I could easily (and hopefully) be wrong, but I’d set the over/under at 6 and I’d take the under. Given the current environment, I do think that anyone interested in a finance job post-graduation would do themselves a favor by taking the class.

There is no way in hell I’d even glance twice at this class were I at Williams, but then again, I am far lazier than most Williams students and was more than happy to take a one month break while studying the “philosophy of sports.” Still, it does seem a bit … errrr … heavy compared to other Winter Study options. But I guess you might find 10 hard core finance types in the student body ..

Unfortunately, my guess is that Dick’s link at #3 would be the most enjoyable part of the class. At least I would hope that it would get the biggest laugh!
