Interesting … via Mark Frauenfelder at Boing Boing, links to the two parts of Steve Landsburg’s 10-question exam to determine the honors eligibility of Oberlin economics majors for honors. Oberlin always solicits questions from an outside expert, and Landsburg has posted them on his blog, The Big Questions. I also recommend his blog for general economics reading.
Some of these questions are difficult, good mental checks and challenges. He has started posting solutions to some of the questions, and promises more soon.
