Ec10, Mankiw, and Defending “Textbook” Economics

File this one in the “gems from the Indy’s analytics software” folder: turns out that a 2007 article, Leaving Economics Be, which describes the author’s penchant for Ec10, attracted the attention of none other than N. Gregory Mankiw.

On his personal blog, Mankiw reposted the article:

The article begins: I’m going to admit it – I’m an Ec10 slut.

It’s worth a read, both for the knowledge that N-Greg gave it his stamp of approval, and for a new perspective in a time of Ec10 walkouts and full houses in Sanders Theater whenever Mankiw gets up to lecture.
