It’s tempting to describe this class as a sort of “finishing school” for economics Ph.D. students. But that would perhaps be selling it short. In fact, it might be more accurate to call the core classes you’ve taken so far “starting school,” for they “merely” remind you of some basic economics principles, while teaching you techniques for writing down and solving formal models and for running regressions. This class is supposed to teach you everything else you need to know to be a successful economist, including the nuts-and-bolts of research and writing.
