More economic funnies...

Time to think about how to teach Econ 236B: Economic Growth in the spring--if it winds up on my plate.

In my experience, courses like this do best if they are:
We read the fifteen recent big papers in Economic Growth that are most likely to serve as launching pads for dissertations--for graduate students to write extensions or critiques of them that have the best chance of getting them good jobs at places with smart students and no heavy lifting.

OK, so i am in a more flexible mood.

We have a freshout jarhead, and he called me sir, as he passed my work spot. We had laughed earlier, and I had mentioned I had been in the fleet... well, I got the wind up, and was willing to kvetch about 'putting my boot up where it will...' as he rejoined that he had meant only to show due regard.... and I got to laugh again... about a misplaced memory, about Kimo, and the first class when I was freshout. Kimo had been with pershing missiles, and when the instructor walked briskly up to class, I just caught myself in time, as I started to spin around to salute him....

Ah yes.... what goes around, comes around, and around and around...

No heavy lifting... yeah, right...

And nobody dies...
