Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
Pretty easy, overall.
The class offers a drastically different view on capitalism, the role of government in our economic system and other interesting topics that most students do not have much exposure to. Even if you do not share the same views as the professor (or the authors of the books you have to read), hearing their arguments helps you develop a wider viewpoint on the problems we are currently facing as a society and will face in the future.
The highlight of this course would be the open discussion he holds during class. It was a completely different learning experience than most every other course I've had in college so far. There are no powerpoints or set lectures, the class discussion is based solely off asking him questions from the reading and him giving responses, which then spark new questions and new responses.

Advice for students:
I would say that this course requires the ability to think critically about current topics in different ways than the normal business college student is used to. I would advise students to attend every class (he allows 3 absences a semester) and knock out the one-page summaries as soon as possible so that you can stay on track and give yourself more time to work on the final paper.
