As somebody who remembers the confusion and excitement of entering college without a clear path but with a wide-eyed appreciation of the range of options, I enjoy the chance to teach students who may not have considered economics before. Some discover a new interest and direction, and I hope that the others learn a powerful way of thinking about markets and social issues that they can carry with them.
