SWEET Summer Book Club

I'm pleased to announce the first ever SWEET Summer Book Club is finally off the ground.  We plan on reading one book a month for three months until next semester begins and meeting to discuss it when we've finished. We're going to start off by reading SuperFreakonomics, the new popular economics book by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner.
It's a nice piece of fun, accessible, modern economics that covers several interesting and topical subjects ranging from the economics of prostitution, terrorism, and global warming. It's a quick, easy read and a great way to wind down after a stressful semester. We should have several hundred dollars left over from our Koch grant to help cover some of the book expenses so save your receipts if you want a chance to be reimbursed. The book is available on Amazon or alternatively you can simply email me ( and I will work my internet magic and get a copy to you immediately. If there are no objections we'll meet Thursday, June 17th at 5pm in the College Coffee House to discuss the book and any other econ-related tangents you feel like sharing. See you there.
