Listed below are links to weblogs that reference The Poor State of Economics Departments :


"The economics department could reduce the number of students... by raising requirements (e.g., every major would have to take multivariate calculus and linear algebra)."

At the University of Texas at Austin Economics was the most popular major in the College of Liberal Arts until 2002. After 2002 Economics majors were required to take real calculus instead of calculus for business majors. Now the most popular major is Government.



Good idea, though? Isn't there a trend of American college students out of "hard" majors, so we end up getting lots of art critics and fewer scientists?

I love your blog very much, more more info, I will concern it again!
