Easily the worst economics professor to teach at Whitman during my 4 years. His inability to teach was matched only by his antagonism and personal attacks on students. Thank God he didn't get a tenure track position.

Yoram is awesome. He wrote a great, cheap textbook ($4) that replaced a MUCH more expensive textbook for his course. His teaching style is very dynamic and conversational, and his textbook reflects that. He is a very young, cool, and chill guy who connects well with students. Also, as long as you keep your shit under control, you don't have to attend class on note-taking days, which is great for those who need more sleep. It is a travesty that he was not offered a tenure position. If anyone knows how we can try to get this guy a tenure-track position, they should do so. He is amazing, and if he leaves it will be a huge loss for this college.

Yoram is an awesome guy and a gifted prof. He is willing to shape his class to best support the students. His lectures generally did a good job of making some rather dull material seem interesting.

The material discussed on "Fun Days" should not be underestimated. Real-world applications of economic ideas and discussions on legitimate problems in this society make the class especially interesting.

Nice guy, but not a great prof. He seemed to care more about students liking him than actually challenging us. At least it was an easy A.

yoram is a rude dude (a bad mother). he brings mirth and amusing cynicism to an often drab subject. it's a crying shame he was not offered a tenure position.

Really cool and funny guy. I give a 7 because I feel like I did not really learn about what interested me-- such as why certain countries have higher poverty rates... The class focus seems too narrow. The concepts/ laws of economics that we learned do not always seem like they can be applied to real life situations. Homework load seems slightly below average.
