The first meeting of the Economics Reading Group was held last week. We discussed the chapter on income facts and fallacies in Thomas Sowell's "Economic Facts and Fallacies." Our discussion was started by watching a video interview of Sowell from 2008 (posted in a previous blog post).
Our next meeting will be held November 20th. In that meeting we will discuss the chapter on male-female facts and fallacies.
To watch a more recent interview (2011) with Sowell on the latest edition of his book, see below.
This semester four economics majors are participating in the first economics service learning course.
Emma Webb, Robert Horn, Katelyn Nuckoles, and William Corso will be assisting Mr. Hartman in teaching his AP Economics course at Patrick Henry High School.
The four Roanoke College students develop simulations and discussion questions each week to bring into the PHHS classroom. Afterwards the economics majors post reflection pieces on the course blog. You can follow the experience by checking out the blog here.
