I'm really not that surprised with all of the negativity directed at Prof. Allen on this site. After all, most of the people here are just like him - only they inhabit the other end of the political spectrum, the side which seems to, ironically, have as many closed-minded people as their right-wing rivals. Hypocritical, if you ask me...

I find Allen's take on economics far more logical and sensible than any of the other views shoved down my throat every time I have the misfortune of walking by Ackerman Union. If his lectures make you fall asleep, take some ritalin.

Basically, don't go into his lectures with a closed mind. I mean, if someone spends more time researching, studying, and theorizng on a subject than you've been alive, there might just be some truth in his conservative views.

On tests, he is hard, but fair. Grading on a curve only insults a student's intelligence, in my humble view.

This is NOT as hard as some people say... It's manageable to do well in this class. I think Prof. Allen does a good job,he has a good sense of humor and his lectures are NOT boring at all (I found the class material very interesting and lectures enjoyable).
Do not try to memorize quotes or other material... try to UNDERSTAND it. This is the class where you need to apply you creatical thinking and abstract association abilities...
