Please complete this survey. I collect this information for two reasons: First, with more information I can tailor course materials, lectures, and tutoring sessions specifically for you and your fellow students; and, I also use this information to shape future course content and teaching strategies. Second, with this data I might conduct informal research aimed at improving A-State student experiences or formal research for publication purposes. It is very important that you answer all questions as honestly and accurately as possible. Note: All of the information that I collect is stored in password-protected files, which are stored in password-protected folders that are stored on password protected storage devices. Also, note I WILL NEVER SHARE ANY IDENTIFIABLE, SENSITIVE INFORMATION WITH ANYONE. So, please be frank. You don't have to answer any question about any topic that makes you feel uncomfortable. You will not be rewarded or penalized in any way for skipping questions that might seek to elicit information you consider sensitive.
Thank you very much. I am very grateful you have taken the time to help me do my job better, and thank you for helping make A-State a better university--one you will one day be very proud to call your alma mater.
This survey should take about 15 minutes to complete.
“If in . . . personal transactions, where all the conditions of the case were known to me, I have so often miscalculated, how much oftener shall I miscalculate in political affairs, where the conditions are too numerous, too widespread, too complex, too obscure to be understood. . . . [W]hen I remember how many of my private schemes have miscarried — how speculations have failed, agents proved dishonest, marriage been a disappointment — how my carefully-governed son has turned out worse than most children — how the thing I desperately strove against as a misfortune did me immense good . . . whilst the objects I ardently pursued brought me little happiness when gained — when I recall these and hosts of like facts, I am struck with the incompetence of my intellect to prescribe for society.” (The Man Versus The State, with Six Essays on Government, Society, and Freedom)
JP recently spoke at Harvard University, in interview format, on the topic: Mask of Compassion: Post-Modernism & Neo-Marxism. This is a five minute clip from that talk (available in full at http://bit.ly/2qKZTwS) on the true purpose of university education. Educate yourself. Become articulate -- able to think, form arguments, act and lead.
In this series, Professor Don Boudreaux explores the question economists have been asking since the era of Adam Smith -- what creates wealth? On a timeline of human history, the recent rise in standards of living resembles a hockey stick -- flatlining for all of human history and then skyrocketing in just the last few centuries.
