Comment: did you know that powell makes $375,000 a year? anyways, for that much money holy shit is this class bland. powell is a bland man but he's a really nice guy and his tests are pretty fair. be ready to work your ASS off and stay up til 4 am rederiving general least squares models. powell is much too bland (notice my poetic repetition of the word bland. bland. bland bland) to inspire anyone so you have to motivate yourself, either by really delving into some admittedly fascinating theories of econometric analysis, or by printing out a big fat 'A' and stapling it your desk so you see it every goddamn day. in any case, hard classes deserve a lot of work and this is no exception. powell will do his best but be warned, his best isn't very good. hopefully your GSI will give a shit or something good luck.

Comment: Powell is bland but very nice. He is really approachable and particularly helpful during office hours. Problem sets are kind of difficult but exam is fair.
