Responses to Matt Keyes

Matt asked some questions after the last class on Friday that might be interesting to the rest of you. I figured I’d post some responses here.

Broadly, the topics we covered were:

  • Why don’t a lot of people outside of economics classes “get” macroeconomics?
  • Why do people seem to be more worried about the little stuff than the big stuff?
  • Why do economists seem more conservative than other social sciences?

I’ll put up a post about each of these.

Remember, none of this is testable (for my Spring 2009 class).
