What Are You Willing to Give Up?

What if you had the chance to sit in on a course by a Nobel Prize winning economist?  What if it was "free"? Well, “free” in the sense that there's not a monetary payment necessary. As we all know, there's an opportunity cost. This may take about 25 hours or so of your time. You probably won't get a lot that you can use directly with your students, but I suspect you'll gain a lot more understanding of an important topic that your students will benefit from.

Follow this link and you will have the chance to sit in on Gary Becker's lectures on human capital at the University of Chicago (HT to Marginal Revolution). I know I'm going to enjoy them.
