Hopeful RNC Chair Ken Blackwell Denounces Herbert Hoover as a Dangerous Leftist
Don't Bet on It Ross...

The Withdrawal of the Tenured Berkeley Faculty from the Undergraduate Teaching Program Continues...

UPDATE: Let me stress: we are teaching undergraduates less because we are each teaching graduate students more, and we are each teaching graduate students more because there are fewer of us: we are down Yingyi Qian, Chad Jones, Chang-Tai Hsieh, George Akerlof (retired), David Romer, Christie Romer, Paul Ruud, and are about to be down Raj Chetty--but we as a department don't have their salaries to spend and only have permission to conduct one search...


I'm finding myself very busy this semester. But not with undergraduate courses with two-digit numbers or three-digit numbers beginning with "1". Lots of stuff to do with the graduate students, and too few faculty members:
