Class Details:

Open

Session:
Units:
Instruction Mode: In person but all slides are put on Sakai so you’ll skip once or twice
Instructor: Wrote the textbook
Description: Basic economic concepts which you still don’t understand from AP Micro, such as demand and supply, market structures and pricing, market efficiency and equilibrium. Macroeconomic concepts such as inflation, unemployment, trade, economic growth and development that you could give a shit about and still don’t know how it’s different from micro.

Textbook/other:
All students required to purchase newest edition of textbook, even though it will only be used a few times over the course of the semester. This is because it’s the best textbook out there and not due to conflicts of interest or royalties. Annoyingly enough, none of the problem set answers can be found on Yahoo! Answers.

Class Title: PUBPOL 494 Leadership in Politics (LEC)

Class Details:

Open

Session:
Units:
Instruction Mode: Very intense monologues by the professor
Instructor: Some big name in policy you’re hoping to get a letter of recommendation from; probably will forget about you two weeks after classes end
Description:

Explores ways in which value conflicts in communities affect civic and political participation, as well as policy design. This class will almost entirely consist of people you hate but must pretend to find interesting due to their DSG powers. Examines questions about reinventing democracy at the grassroots, in which students will pretend like they are part of the ‘middle class’. Challenges students to develop a framework of problem solving approaches and to consider diverse ways to exercise leadership, though almost entirely non-practical for the real world. Instructor consent required.
