Kim Ruhl reminds us that some schools are considering “trigger warnings” for class material that some students could find traumatic. We don’t want to be left behind in Global Economy, so we thought we might issue these warnings:
- Natural logarithms. Yes, they build character, but how much sense does it make for Excel to use LN for logarithm?
- Argentine economic policy. A wonderful country, but their idea of economic policy is scarier than “The Shining.”
- Foreign exchange rates. Why study them, when no one knows how they work anyway?
More suggestions welcome. What did you find most traumatic about the course?
