This class was tough.
This was my favorite course. It was challenging, but it was not just the course that made me realize where my passion lies, but the teacher taught me a great life lesson-it is better to study in the morning when you are alert than do an all-nighter and not retain any of the information you have learned. The course itself was challenging-10 page paper, exactly ten pages, no less nor more, on any subject related to political economy. I chose tax evasion-a rare subject for UC Irvine. However, I received an A + in that class. That class made me work the hardest I have ever worked in my 4 year UC Irvine undergraduate career. This is the best class you will take at UC Irvine if you are interested in money studies.
The professor and the research paper were the best part. I am not a fan of studying and test taking, but writing essays are my favorite. I love writing and researching and being able to talk about my ideas loudly in class and answering challenging questions Professor Bach would ask us. I conducted research on tax evasion and I learned so much about tax evasion between various countries-evaded into Switzerland. The professor is also an interesting character-very reserved and pessimistically joyful.

Advice for students:
Begin your research papers ten weeks in advance. The course is only ten weeks long. I finished my paper within the first three weeks and just edited and edited for the next 7 until my paper was perfect. Also, study every single day. After each class, go over your notes and try to memorize and review what you have learned so you retain the information in the long-run.
