"As registration begins, you might have some advisees who ask if ECON 180 is being offered in the fall. We have created a new course, ECON 101 Economics of Social Issues*, that replaces ECON 180 beginning in the fall. ECON 101 will satisfy the same general education requirement as ECON 180. We think the new course will be a greatly improved course for non-business majors over ECON 180. This summer semester will be the last time ECON 180 is offered."Great. We're going from teaching the principles of how economics actually works through supply and demand to the unicorn farts and rainbows model that the speshul snowflakes wish was real.
I don't know whether to ascribe this to active malice or active stupid.
