Welcome Back, Econofolks

Hello and welcome to the friendly Appletonian confines for the 2010-2011 academic year.   A few noteworthy elements:

  • The first Economics TeaBA will be Monday, September 20 at 4:20.  The location is TBA, but it will certainly be somewhere on Briggs 2nd.
  • Professor Gerard is out of town until Wednesday, and may be difficult to locate around campus until then.
  • There is plenty of room in Economics 300.   If you are interested, register or put your name on the waiting list, and enroll in The Moodle (enrollment code 0300).  It will meet Monday this week, but not Tuesday.  There is a quiz Wednesday.  The class meets M, Tu, W, F at 3:10.
  • Notice the fall course offerings include history of economic thought with professor emeritus, Jules LaRocque.  This could be a one-shot deal as far as history of thought goes for many of you, so you might poke your head in there on Tuesday and see how it sounds.
  • Schumptoberfest™ is October 22-24 up at the Björklunden facility. I will post more about this later in the week.  Those of you interested, should see Professor Gerard (when he gets back; see above).

It’s shaping up as a good year.
