Do Great Economists Make Great Teachers? George Stigler as a Dissertation Supervisor

Author

Listed:
  • Craig Freedman

Abstract

An examination of George Stigler's teaching career clarifies the requirements for an effective teacher of graduate economics and especially sheds light on the nature of the supervision of doctoral candidates. The heterogeneous composition of graduate students in aggregate means that quite distinct approaches can prove to be equally successful.
