Buying Course Reader

Dear class,

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.
