Thanks for all of the advice on my previous entry. I have decided to take 11.025J D-Lab: Development, since I have studied “issues of international development” from an economic perspective in previous courses, and want to see it differently this time. Also, the opportunity to travel during Independent Activities Period (IAP) is pretty hard to resist.
It’s always nice to see the median voter theorem in action.
