Sub-question: Want to visit Graceland? The 6th Annual Economics Teaching Conference, hosted by the Gulf Coast Economics Association, will be held in Memphis, TN on October 21st and 22nd. You can see more information about the conference here. I will be giving a talk about the effect of doing extra credit on classroom performance (Spoiler alert: trying harder will improve your grade. Shocking.), and some actually prestigious folks such as Greg Mankiw and Steve Landsburg will be there. (Yes, the same Steve Landsburg of octagon fame.)
So you should come- it’ll be a good time. Besides, I need someone to take a picture of me with an econ textbook at Graceland…and help me get the lyrics to Walking in Memphis out of my head.
P.S. I really tried, but I couldn’t resist…
Update: How on earth did I forget about this???
