ECON 199

Sound Economics

This course is an activity credit where students participate in Sound Economics, a student-run economics blog. Students become familiar with the style and technique for academic blog writing, ultimately producing weekly articles which generate novel content, engage in current economic events, and synthesize economic ideas from the literature and the broader economic blogosphere. Weekly meetings are required to promote economic discussions, participation in peer review, workshopping writing skills, and the promotion and management of Sound Economics itself.

Prerequisites: ECON 170 (can be concurrent) and permission of the instructor.
