I've uploaded instructions to prepare next Monday's (20th) literature review on the Stiglitz's book. A PDF of those instructions can be found under the heading "Assignments and Instructions" or here. The deadline to submit your preparation on Studentportalen is Sunday 19 October 23:59.
You will be able to buy the Course Reader next week on Tuesday 2 September between 09:00 and 12:00 at CEMUS (The Global Economy office, right next to the library). The price is 280kr (bring cash).
If it is physically impossible for you to come at that time, you will be able to buy it at the course introduction on Wednesday 3 September. However, since there are some readings assigned for this session (see list below), we highly recommend you pick up the Course Reader on monday.
