Professors are people too!

We did a little research on Dirk Mateer after we read this great quote of his in Valley Magazine: “I’m just a guy, teaching this class.”

The blog is called ‘From ABBA to Zepelin, Led: Using Music to Teach Economics’– not the snapiest name but whatever. What the profs on the site do is phrase economic questions by using song lyrics as jumping off points. Don’t get it? Here’s an example post:


Pretty cool if you ask us.
