Vision Statement

As students learn ways of thinking that are common to the study of micro and macro economics, I am hopeful that they will develop a 'mindset' for thinking about current affairs using the basic vocabulary of economics. This blog project, then, is an effort to create space and apply course work to analyze current affairs.

I'm excited about engaging students in authentic conversations about economics regarding issues and ideas that are both meaningful and relevant to them. I'm hoping this project will be 'messy' and improvisational... and in the process students and I will learn from each other.

We invite you to join our conversations: read our posts and comment on our ideas: engage us, challenge us, and learn with us.
