Inspired by Socrates: ECON 345

When I teach Industrial Organization (ECON 345), I use the Socratic method. Named after the Greek philosopher Socrates, this method involves getting to the bottom of a logical puzzle as the instructor asks questions and reacts to student answers. Some students find the Socratic method intimidating, but most of my past ECON 345 students have found it liberating. I’m proud of ECON 345 alumni, some of whom have gone to to achieve distinction in the fields of law, public policy and consulting.
