Mike says, "Economics has given me the tools to make sound decisions and interpret behavior. I have found that the sedulous study of economics has opened many doors of opportunity for me."

Mike further states, "Writing EconEdLink lessons has helped me become a better teacher. I have learned how to teach complex concepts efficiently while gaining insight, as well."
