Daily Shameless Plug: The economics department everyone knows


For several years Mason had the distinction of being the only school in the world with two Nobel prize winners in Economics.  While that’s a pretty amazing accomplishment, I find our economics faculty are generally better known for all the press they garner than for the awards they receive.  Walter Williams has a regular column that appears in 140 newspapers and websites, and the rest of the faculty show up just about every week on the national news programs or in the national press.  Check out the latest – a New York Times article by Tyler Cowen: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/28/business/28view.html?_r=1&ref=business&oref=slogin
