Sorry for the lack of the usual number of posts today. Things should be back to normal tomorrow. I am in Santiago, Chile where I am teaching in the graduate program in competition policy at the Catholic University of Chile. It is a mixed group of lawyers and economists and I have found the quality of students to be extremely high. People have a very sophisticated understanding on economics and doctrine. I am teaching after students have had econ faculty provide a few weeks of instruction on the economic analyses of competition. I wish more US and European law schools had such an integrated approach of instruction. On a far less ambitious leve,l in 2007 I taught a combined JD and econ PhD student class at the University of Wisconsin with my friend and co-author Kyle Stiegert in Applied Econ but here everyone has had significantly more classroom and work experience on competition matters and the quality of discussion is vastly better.
