Tufts University: Siddiq Abdullah - Economics - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
I would discourage anyone from taking this class. Abdullah is not a good professor- he's simply not much good at imparting his knowledge, and that's all there is to it. Classes are very boring and completely confusing, and students often rely on their TA's to demystify the concepts learned in class.
While this sounds like an ideal econ class for IR majors, it's not. You will learn next to nothing and you will be bored to boot. If you're interested in the concepts of economics, and the political implications of economic decisions, i would recommend Prof. Chase's (Poli Sci) classes on US Foreign Economic Policy. This class is a waste of time for econ majors and non-econ majors alike.

Light workload, but the tests are obnoxious and don't always make sense. Exam questions don't test whether you understand the concepts, but rather if you memorized the definitions from class and the text.
