J. Bradford DeLong
Economics 210B is an attempt to think about some topics in non-American economic history. While it is intended for Ph.D. students in economics thinking of writing dissertations in economic history, graduate students in other degree programs and brave undergraduates are welcome.
Class meetings will consist of discussion of that week's readings, to be found in a reader available at Copy Central (southside, on Bancroft).
Readings must be completed before class: otherwise it makes no sense.
There are four assignments for Economics 210b:
Files for this course will be up on the world wide web at http://www.j-bradford-delong.net/Teaching_Folder/Econ_210b/Econ_210bS98.html.
I at least am finding the www useful--not so much for web-based distribution of materials, but certainly for web-based archiving. If you find it useful, let me know. If you don't find it useful, let me know.
I would like to see whether it is practical to have what I call "virtual seminar hours": that is, you send me questions, I send you back comments or answers; broadcast everything to the rest of the class, and then post them in a neatly-archived form.
I would also like to have a page of people in Economics 210b. In order to get the people page up and running, I need all students to send me (a) an e-mail message with your e-mail address (and whatever other information you want posted), and (b) a picture (ideally a small .gif file attached to an e-mail message).
