Navigating ECN 212 I will begin with some direct quotes from last spring’s teaching evaluations: 1. I thoroughly enjoyed this class. I went in with a pretty bad attitude, and I figured it would be my hardest, most frustrating class. While it was definitely a difficult class, it ended up being my favorite class this semester!

I am sensitive to both points of view. So I will work harder to make theoretical economics more accessible to you. However, you need to keep the material in perspective because dwelling on theory is exactly why the
