Tufts University: Daniel Richards - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Prof. Richards gives a good lecture. His dry wit and nicely organized classes will keep you awake, no doubt. He has a good command of the material, and you want to hear it straight from him (there is hardly any reading material for the course). He is, however, difficult to get in touch with outside of class... so don't necessarily expect talk of monetary policy over coffee on the weekends. Overall, he is a good guy who teaches a good course.
The course is not that rigorous. You will want to attend class as much as you can -- the reading in the course packet is fairly light -- but missing a class won't throw you off in the least. Problem sets are not graded, and are there for your enjoyment... but if you do them, attend most of the classes, and can tie your shoes you'll do well on the exams (which are open-note and quite straightforward). It is an interesting class that won't break you.
