Course meets weekly for discussion of current Wall Street Journal articles related to the week's ECON 101 topics, stressing the use and application of the microeconomics tools being learned in ECON 101.
Students will select a topic, turn in weekly summaries, open the discussion on their week's topic, and write a brief paper evaluating one of the articles discussed in more detail. This paper will be turned in on the last day of classes.
Workshop attendance is mandatory, and each student will be required to subscribe to the Wall Street Journal for the term. Subscription information will be in Ulrich's and also available in class the first day. Evaluation of students will be entirely on the basis of their paper, attendance, and summaries.
Students in ECON 108 MUST BE enrolled in ECON 101. Please contact Jan Gerson (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in enrolling for ECON 108 and are unable to register for it.
