A Wolverine among Yalies

Robert Shiller is an economist,
best selling author and current
professor at Yale University. He
graduated from the University in
1967 with a bachelor's degree in
economics. He was awarded the
2013 Nobel Prize in Economics.
What made you want to
become a professor?
I am the first in my family to
become a professor soI didn't get
it from my parents. Although, my
two boys are both professors. I
just think I am a scholarly type.
I like research. I thought I would
be a science professor at first, but
then I got interested in econom-
ics. I just like to read scholarly
works. I have always believed

in those kinds of people. I don't If you could give current

zero. I get bored. of advice, what would it be?

What has been your favorite
part about your time at the
University of Michigan?
Well, it wasn't sports. I think I
went to maybe one football game
the whole time. And it wasn't
dating; I didn't do much of that.
I didn't join a fraternity. I was
an assistant night editor at The
Michigan Daily. I actually liked
that experience but I don't know
if that was my favorite part. I
suppose my favorite was just the
interaction with other young peo-
ple, similar students, just getting
to talk to them.

I tell my students they are com-
ing for a college education. They
should think of it as an opportu-
nity to build some kind of unique
human capital. Human capital
is an economics term for invest-
ment in yourself and education.
But literally it means the kind of
skills and special knowledge you
have that might be, hopefully is,
unique. I tell my students to not
worry so much about grades; it's
really about what you develop
yourself into.

Detroit mayor-elect says
skin color too central in race

Duggan to meet
with Snyder, Detroit
leaders within the
next two days
DETROIT (AP) - Detroit's
mayor-elect said Wednesday
that far too much had been made
of his skin color during ahistoric
write-in campaign and general

election victory that will make
him the predominantly black
city's first white mayor in four
Appearing at his first news
conference as mayor-elect,
Mike Duggan said he would
meet over the next two days
with Michigan's governor
and Detroit's current leaders,
including the state-appoint-
ed emergency manager who
currently controls the cash-

strapped city's checkbook.
With Detroit grappling with
$18 billion in debt and awaiting a
judge's ruling on whether it can
move forward with a bankrupt-
cy filing, Duggan said the race of
the mayor is not a factor.
"I resent it. I've resented it
from the beginning," Duggan
said. "People in this city got past
it almost a year ago, as people
got to know me and we started
to relate as individuals."
Unofficial general election
results Tuesday night showed
Duggan, a former Detroit Medi-
cal Center chief executive,
defeating Wayne County Sheriff
Benny Napoleon 55 percent to 45
percent. Napoleon is black.
Race, more specifically black
and white, has defined Detroit
for generations.
More than 80 percent of the
700,000 people living in Detroit
are black. The last time it had
a white mayor, only about 44
percent of Detroit's 1.5 million
residents were black and the city
was only a few years removed
from a race riot that left 43 peo-
ple dead and dozens of buildings
"Detroit became 'black
Detroit' and the suburbs became
the 'white suburbs, and people
picked sides," then-mayor and
now convicted felon Kwame Kil-
patrick told The Associated Press
for a story in 2007.
Of the 10 cities of at least
100,000 people with the largest
percentage of black residents,
only New Orleans and Mont-
gomery, Ala., have white mayors.
The others have black mayors.
Duggan's election could help
blur the color lines, but when he
takes office in January Detroit
officially could be bankrupt. He
will be expected to have solu-
tions for lowering one of the
highest violent crime rates in the
country - in a city that struggles
to respond to 911 calls - and fix-
ing Detroit's many crumbling
neighborhoods. Public transpor-
tation is in shambles, as are other
city services.
