We kick off the final week of classes with a holiday, perhaps an apt metaphor for where many of you have been mentally for the past week. The holiday preempts the usual slot for the Economics TeaBA, paving the way an afternoon barbecue for the missus and me.
We get back to serious business in my courses Wednesday. In environmental economics (Econ 280), small groups will be reviewing the cost-benefit analysis of the Minerals and Management Services offshore leasing program. Then in the afternoon, the political economy of regulation course (Econ 240) will be going through some of the administrative regulations governing offshore drilling, truly a look at how the sausage is made. If you are interested, stop on in to see whether they’ve learned anything.
So, I’m headed over to the parade. Hope to see you there.
