Welcome to ECON 300 for Fall 2010. This course will be challenging because of the work required, but if you keep up with the assignments you will have no trouble being successful.
If you have not done so already, please order the book for this class.
The single best thing you can do to prepare is to come up with an analytical question that is amenable to economic analysis that you would like to research this semester.
