Prof. Rigby is awesome. He knows his stuff, is incredibly approachable outside of class, and genuinely seems interested in what he teaches. His teaching style is very relaxed, and for a non-econ minded student taking economic geography, he made all concepts very clear. He is definitely one of my favoirte professors at UCLA. The materials he assigns are always pertinent, and he makes sure to relate this material to class, rather than just telling you to read it and forgetting about it. Take this class if he teaches it again, or any class he teaches for that matter.
