"Ever wonder what the first year of an Economics Ph.D. program looks like? Now you can see for yourself here:

The directory above contains scanned PDFs of about 2,000 pages of notes, problem sets and exams from the first year of the Ph.D. program at the University of California, San Diego from 2010. I've also included some material from the math prep I did during the year before the program began, including courses in real analysis, linear algebra and differential equations."

Almost every university in the U.S. that has grad econ teaches, as part of the core in mainstream economics, the "Neoclassical Synthesis," which is "largely Keynesian in macroeconomics and neoclassical in microeconomics."

One of my professors, who had a Ph.D econ from Berkeley, wanted to get a Ph.D in Statistics.

However, he was told statistics is a "dead field."

There's still much more to discover or learn in economics.

Seems like virtually all academic economists are liberals. The only exceptions that I know of are
Greg Mankiw, Glenn Hubbard, and Mark Perry.
