Findlay is a great example of an old econ professor who really should never be allowed in front of students. His attitudes and actions towards his seminar were both hillarious and frustrating. He would come late (and later as the semester went on), come completely unprepared (whether it be knowing what was being presented or even for his own lectures the first month), and FALLING ASLEEP! He definitely nodded off more than a few times during presentations. But what easily annoyed our class the most was his constant interruptions during otherwise good presentations. He would cut off students mid-idea with what he thinks (and then go on for 20 min) which came off as him trying to show off or prove he was paying attention (both usually failed). As a result of this and the negligible coursework, classes were rarely fully attended (which Findlay didn't care about - a rarity in a small seminar) and there was pretty good class cohesion since Findlay just got ridiculous by the end of the class. The best thing about this seminar was that you can do whatever you want for your project (as opposed to Epstein's seminar). So find a topic you're interested in, figure out how to do it, then present it to the class and write the paper. So much freedom is great in the last class in PoliEcon!
Nice guy overall and could be useful in office hours but in the seminar he worked far less than even the laziest second semester senior. I'd recommend this easily over slaving over someone else's work in the other seminar.
