Sharing or copying these notes is illegal and could end note taking for this course Announcements My name is Steven Wood and I’ll be your professor for Economics 100B. Today we will have a brief overview of some of the topics we will be discussing this semester. However, before we jump in, I would like to go over some course logistics. COURSE LOGISTICS This is an intermediate course and we will be digging deeper into many of the things you have learned in Economics 1. I will talk more about waiting list and other logistical things in a bit. First, some information about me. I have been teaching here since 1993 and have been teaching macro every semester since 1998. Still not tired of it so I guess they will let me do it a while longer. I also have a consulting firm which keeps me busy and off the street. I previously worked at Bank of America as a senior economic analyst. Prior to that, I worked at a consulting firm which has merged out of existence. My degree is in Economics, undergraduate, graduate and PhD. We will be using a text book one if whose authors is Ben Bernanke, Chairman of the Federal Reserve. This is a brand new edition (6 th ) but the previous addition should work as well. In terms of class supplies, the only thing you will need is a set of colored pens or pencils. This will be very useful when you are taking notes especially when we are drawing graphs. You will be required to use different colors on exams. You can use black, red, blue and green. My office is 520 Evans Hall, and office hours will be held between 2:15-3:15, Tuesdays and Thursdays. If you need to meet with me outside of that time, just send me an email and we can schedule an appointment. My email address is: swood@haas.berkeley.edu . My email response policy is 48 business hours. I have no control over anything regarding class registration, even instructor approval. The Economics department does this all online through Bearfacts. Instructor Approval is handled through the Economics head GSI, Jeff Butler who can be reached at headgsi@econ.berkeley.edu or in 508-2 Evans. Some alternatives you have if you don’t think you will get into the class are to take Econ 100B in the summer or fall. I will be teaching it again in the fall; they make me teach it until I get it right. You can also take UGBA 101B which is an equivalent class. Sections 106 and 109 have been
