Greg Mankiw’s Blog: This Year’s First-Year Seminar

by Ohio Digital News

In recent years, I have been teaching a seminar to a small group of Harvard freshmen. I described the seminar in this essay in the NY Times. 

The assigned readings change a bit from year to year. In case any of my blog readers are interested, here are the books I chose for this year:

  • The Worldly Philosophers, by Robert Heilbroner
  • Capitalism and Freedom, by Milton Friedman
  • Equality and Efficiency: The Big Tradeoff, by Arthur Okun
  • We’ve Got You Covered: Rebooting American Health Care, by Liran Einav and
    Amy Finkelstein
  • Open Borders: The Science and Ethics of Immigration, by Bryan Caplan and Zach
  • The Two-Parent Privilege: How Americans Stopped Getting Married and Started
    Falling Behind, by Melissa Kearney
