"I'm a grad student ... and I made $600 last yearGod, funny, because it's true.
Ya, I was going to comment on that. He said 30 and earning $600. I'm doing a little better - 27 on Sunday and earning $19,200. Still... glad I have a sugar mama supporting me.I tell you, though - this blog is going to slow down considerably. It's not just the hours this program will be - that's about comparable. It's the access. I think I'll be doing a lot of group studying in the econ building. Probably for the best, but we'll see.I'm looking forward to this macro TAing. Not all that much grading - two review sessions a week and one office hour session a week. I think the teaching experience will be great.
Buy yourself an iPad and switch to WordPress.As for teaching, hmm, depends on if it is a universally required course or not.
And your university ought to have campus-wide wifi for goodness sake.
Right - I just mean we're going to be doing a lot of study groups in the grad student lounge so I personally won't be accessing the blog or my blogroll much. At work I could pick something interesting off the blog roll and fire off a post in a couple minutes without much problem. It'll just be a different arrangement here - not that the tech isn't feasible. No worries - I'm glad to bury myself in the work. Probably better to refocus away from a lot of the subject matter I cover here too, to be honest.
In other words your regular commentators suck.I am deeply, deeply wounded. ;)Anyway, I am particularly interested to see how your history of economic thought courses deals with Hume (and his epistemology).
If you really want to beat yourself over the head with Hume see: April 1987, _Philosophical Quarterly_Sobel, _On the Evidence of Testimony of Miracles_&Owen, _Hume Versus Price on Miracles and Prior Probabilities_
