    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    An introduction to economic analysis and its application, this class is concerned with examining market economies to understand how the size and composition of national output can be determined. ECON 002 investigates elements of monetary and fiscal policy, international trade, economic development as well as comparative economic systems. ECON 001 is required to take ECON 002. This class also fulfills the society sector.

    Course highlights:

    Students for the most part enjoyed the material and found it to be “enjoyable” and “interesting.” However, some found the material to be “monotonous”, “boring” and “difficult.” Students generally had a mixed view on Professor Bossi’s teaching style. Some felt that he was very passionate about the material that he taught however could be “dry” on some days. Additionally, some were not satisfied with the fact that his slides come “word for word from the textbook.” Although some students felt that the course was too easy, most students felt that the “exams don’t reflect what has been taught in class.”

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advise that you be prepared for a new way of thinking and that you go in to the course willing to put in the effort of learning the material thoroughly. Any lesser understanding of the material will negatively impact you. You must be comfortable with seemingly silly fictitious situations and must have the work ethic to go to recitation and office hours even though they're not required.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course covers microeconomics: the economic decisions of individual people and firms, the determination of prices and quantities of individual goods, wages for various classes of workers, and the theoretical basis for international trade. Students discuss at length government policies like taxes, subsidies, tariffs, trade quotas, and income redistribution.

    Course highlights:

    Students described this course as “engaging and fun,” and reported being challenged by the material. Some were thrown off by the “tricky tests” and did not appreciate the multiple choice “all or nothing” format. The material was described as “invaluable to living as an adult.” The workload was described as not particularly stressful, and one student reported the weekly assignments as taking around “30 minutes” to complete. Many were effusive in the praise of Professor Stein, who was described as “fun” and “accessible.” Students praised office hours as extremely helpful, and many raved about the “engaging and capable professor.”

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Students should always keep up with Stein's assigned readings and notes, practice problems at least a couple times a week, visit her office hours (she'll raise your grade if you demonstrate effort and enthusiasm for the course), actually attend recitations and ask your TA questions, study her past exams before every midterm.
