Harvard students are planning to walk out of economist Gregory Mankiw’s Econ 10 class on Wednesday to show solidarity with the Occupy Movement, according to an email sent to students.Mankiw, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under President George W. Bush and the author of a leading economics textbook, has been less-than-supportive of the Occupy Wall Street protests on his blog — and the email cites his “biased instruction matter” as a reason for the walk-out.
Read the full email below:
Feel upset about EC10 but don’t know how to show your discontent?
Want to get involved in the Occupy Movement?
Join our STUDENT WALK-OUT of EC10 on Wednesday, November 2nd at 12:15!
Gregory Mankiw will be lecturing, and this a great opportunity to show discontent with the style/material/content of the class!
We will be heading over to the higher ed march after the walk-out and anyone is welcome.
So help show solidarity with the Occupy movement by walking out of EC10 at EXACTLY 12:15.
This is later than the general walk-out, but we are making an exception because it is such a symbolic class/instructor.
Let’s show Mankiw that his lack of teaching, extremely high textbook cost, and biased instruction matter to the students!
