Pretty poor web site, eh?


What d’ya want for nothin’    rubber biscuits??


ECN 5493 students, please find below the links for all the PowerPoint slides you could possibly want.


Those named  “PPT”  are from the Publisher and simply copy various figures and tables from your text.


Those named “ESG”  (Ehrenberg, Smith, & Ghent) are from Dr. Ghent – she wrote them sometime in the previous century, and they only cover the first nine chapters (except for Ch. 7).


Throughout the semester, I’ve been updating the ESG slides.  Stay tuned.
