The language of Economics
THE HEIR OF SLYTHERIN
What classes do you teach my.
I teach three undergraduate How have your interna-
courses. The first is Econom- tional experiences shaped
ics 330: American Industries your teaching style?
and it is an in-depth study of I have taught in several dif-
six or seven specific industries ferent French universities. I
in the American economy, like have also taught in a Swiss
the pharmaceutical indus- university and in an Italian
try, the automobile industry, university. The teaching style
banking, the beer industry, the and the learning style are
milk industry and so on ... The very different in those set-
second course that I teach is tings from what they are in the
Economics 432: Government United States. They have con-
Regulation of Industry. That vinced me of the importance
is a course essentially about of maintaining a classroom
treatments by government that is active, a classroom*
of market power ... The last where students and faculty are
course that I teach is Econom- actively engaged in dialogue
ics 453: The European Econo- with one another. I think of
teaching and learning as a con-
tact sport, where people really
do actively engage in dialogue.
What is your biggest
piece of advice to economics
and business majors?
All majors, whether inter-
ested in economics or busi-
ness or pre-med or anything,
is to (try not) to specialize
too soon, not to think that
because you want to go into
business that you're best
off doing only business or if
you're interested in going into
medicine, you're best off only
studying biology or chemistry.
