Your favorite moment in class ? November 8, 2006

Posted by Sharath Rao in economics, humor.

1. Here is something on Nobel Laureate Economist Milton Friedman from his student and now GMU professor Russel Roberts :

You asked if was a student of Milton’s. In my first semester at Chicago as a graduate student in economics, Milton taught a non-credit class for anyone who was interested. The format was quite simple. We could ask him anything we wanted and he would answer. Most of the first-year students sat in and we did ask him everything. We’d even ask him questions off the core exam—the qualifying exam required at the end of the first year. He usually got them right, but he struggled once or twice which made us feel very good. In the middle of that semester, he won the Nobel Prize which was very exciting.

What must that be like !

2. And yeah, a whole lot of economics talks for your hearing pleasure, if any 🙂

3. Atanu Dey goes after Swaminomics again. He has done this before.

4. And finally, why are we so enthusiastic about this ?
