A Conference for Economics Instructors

If you, like me, teach introductory economics, or expect to do so soon, you might be interested in attending this conference. It is a one-day meeting I am running at Harvard on Friday, April 29, with the generous support of my publisher (Southwestern, a part of Cengage Learning).

The conference includes the following presentations from five Harvard faculty:
  • Greg Mankiw, The Challenges Facing U.S. Monetary and Fiscal Policy
  • Alberto Alesina, Social Policies in the U.S. and Europe: Why So Different?
  • Eric Mazur, Confessions of a Converted Lecturer
  • Ben Friedman, Religious Influences on Economic Thinking: Where Did the Economics We Teach Come From?
  • Jeremy Stein, Lessons from the Financial Crisis
In addition, after lunch, participants will have the opportunity to tour Harvard, and the day will end with a party at my home.
