Prices have a job to do, prices must be free to tell the truth.
- Alfred Marget, 1899-1962

Human history is a race between education and catastrophe.
- H.G. Wells, 1920

Everyone is entitled to his own opinion but we are not entitled to our own facts.
- Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (1927-2003)





Anyone who says that economic security is a human right has been too much babied. While he babbles, other men are risking and losing their lives to protect him. They are fighting the sea, fighting the land, fighting disease and insects and weather and space and time for him while he chatters that all men have a right to security and that some pagan god -Society, the State, the Government, the Commune- must give it to them. Let the fighting men stop fighting this inhuman earth for one hour, and he will learn how much security there is.
- Rose Wilder Lane, 1886-1968

That some should be rich shows that others may become rich and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another, but let him work diligently to build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence.
- Abraham Lincoln

My economics courses will use Moodle websites, here: http://moodle.piercecollege.edu/

If you are interested in joining a Moodle group & taking a class, please email me. I will send you information on how to access my course webpage contents & add! My courses & lessons are designed for students who plan to transfer to a 4-year university. They are designed primarily for business students with majors in areas such as Accounting, Finance, Management, Bus. Law, Economics, etc. They are presented to prepare students who need to take upper-division economics courses. If you are taking my class to satisfy a general edn. requirement or “breadth” course, please know that my courses are technical in nature. They involve a good deal of memorizing and require you to work accurately with graphs and with formulas throughout the semester. In other words, they are not easy classes. But they will provide lots of “foundational material” that will prepare you for business and social science courses taught at 4-year universities. My courses will also assist students planning to attend to Law School, or enter an MBA program. I would encourage anyone who is “undecided” about a major to try my classes as well. The initial lectures will help you make a decision about a major -- and perhaps Economics will be your choice! I look forward to meeting you.
