Opportunity Cost 101

Geez, you’d think I’m getting some sort of kickbacks for all my references to Freakonomics lately, but, to be honest, there are just so many interesting things they discuss.

Take this article on over-enrolled classes and how one enterprising student attempted to sell her seat! Man, that’s gotta be good for the ego (of the professor, I mean) – assuming the demand is due to the “greatness” of the class as opposed to it being some sort of prereq.  It makes me really curious what it’d be like to sit in on a lecture by Prof. Levitt.

Be sure you read through all the links as well, because some are as interesting as the original article!
