Economics alumni memory contestIn honour of the University of Victoria’s 50th anniversary, the UVic Economics Alumni Network held a contest for the best memory as an economics student at UVic.
And the winner is ...
Congratulations to Johann Kuntze (2002) for his great memory of his time as an Econ student at UVic. He won a copy of the Deluxe Illustrated version of Steven Levitt’s Superfreakonomics!
“Dr. Peter Kennedy, asking in a Cost-Benefit class about “what do we really need”, and Steven Tobin (MA, 1998) responding “I thought, according to the Beatles, all we need is love”. I recall that it took Dr. Kennedy off guard and everyone (including Dr. Kennedy) laughing about it. And the Econ Grad intramural softball team “Copacetic” – Never quite winning the championship, but a lot of good times and cold beverages along the way.”
