Long hours of work, little recognition, and horrible job prospects, I imagine.

Cliometrics?

If you're really passionate about it will it really matter?

Not even. More like agricultural techniques, machinery, and their impact of local and national economies. Of course, this could all change.

I don't know. Ask me when I'm looking for work.

Ah now I understand what you've been doing in Serbia. Country of peasants :-)
Not one of the UN-FAO projects?

Congratulations!

Ah, they tell you this after comps so that you've already invested 2 years of your life?The sneaky bastards.

Is this in an econ program or a history program?

Anyone have sizing advice when it comes to braces? I'm 6 foot and based on measuring from front to back I need 48" braces which, according to most websites, is an Extra Large. Does that sound right?

Hmm, i am a few inches over 6ft and i have about a dozen braces and have never needed more than a Large (44 inches). It also very much depends on how high you wear your trousers, lenghth of torso, girth/build and if you like the metal clasp/buckle high around your shoulder, if you take your jacket off etc.

 

Most of my braced  trousers have around a 12'' rise- give or take a few mm and i vacillate between a 40 and 44 inches. I also have a preferred inseam of 33 1/4 inches if that helps.

호텔 연락처 정보 58, Mapo-daero, Mapo-gu 서울 121-040 대한민국 +

 

That's a cut-and-paste, so I hope it makes sense to you. Also the address appears to be different to what's on their website, so I might have got this mixed up.

 

I have not even the faintest memory of this hotel, so it can't have been particularly special. But I think it was quite well located.

 

Complete coincidence that both these recent recco's belong to the Best Western chain. I also stay at the Best Western Grand Hotel when I'm working in Mildura. Maybe I should joint their points club...

That a finished thesis is better than a perfect thesis. That was useful.

History. The economics part is only in relation to how it affected the work lives of early Americans at this point. Who knows how this will end up, though. My advisor does have an interest in the history of capitalism after all.

I come from the econ half of the business school; that's why I asked you if you did cliometrics. Well, it's no secret that history has a brutal job market. But if you love the subject, as long as you're not paying tuition, might as well give 100% and finish the dissertation.

I am not paying tuition, so that's nice. I have a friend who went into economics and he can't find a job either. I imagine that's a rather brutal market as well. If I'm being honest I don't really care about job prospects. I just want to do history. Thankfully my financial situation isn't impacted much either way. If it were I might have gone into business.
