Rememinder to Real Estate 371 Students (and possibly other Econ Students): Attendance and a short 1 page paper means extra credit! That oughta spruce up your marginal benefit a bit.
I have had Officer as a Professor and studied income inequality a bit with Persky: Both are very intelligent and quite capable of turning complex ideas into simple ideas.
