I had an economics class that was taught by a professor of chemistry who had a Ph.
D. in chemistry, and I loved the idea of learning chemistry by rote.
But I wasn’t interested in that.
I was interested in economics.
So I decided to learn it by studying textbooks and looking up the latest research, and after I had completed my freshman year, I decided I wanted to become a chemist.
I studied economics, chemistry, physics, and statistics.
I spent my freshman and sophomore years at MIT and grad school, and in fact I went on to become the dean of undergraduate economics at MIT.
That was during the height of the Cold War.
My job was to go into research and develop new technologies that would allow us to develop more effective weapons against enemies.
My first job was at the Department of Energy, working on a new kind of chemical weapon called a neutron bomb.
I thought I was going to be doing that for the rest of my career, but instead I was teaching at MIT for two years.
So what I did for a couple of years in the Department was basically to read a lot of books about the physics of the neutron bomb and the way that it worked.
And the more I read, the more intrigued I became by the fact that I could have a lot more control over it.
It was a fascinating journey.
My interest in chemistry grew in the early 1960s, and by the time I finished high school in the mid-1960s, I had been an economics major for three years.
I had spent two years doing research in the laboratory and then doing my PhD in economics at Stanford University.
I wanted my PhD to be a really good science project, but I was really drawn to chemistry.
I loved that my undergraduate studies in chemistry gave me an understanding of how chemical reactions work, how chemical compounds work, and how they react.
And so I applied to go to graduate school in economics because I thought that it would give me a lot better control over what I wanted as a scientist, so that I would be able to make better decisions and be able make better predictions about the world.
I applied in 1970, but it took me three years to get in, and it was very difficult because there were only a few applicants.
There was one professor from Princeton, and so I went in.
I felt very strongly about what I was doing, and the chemistry department was very supportive of me.
It gave me a really strong sense of accomplishment and also a strong sense that I had succeeded.
But it took a while.
I did a lot to get accepted, and at the end of my PhD I got a very nice fellowship in 1977 at the University of California, Berkeley.
I remember one of the things I was told about that was that there was an essay that was submitted to a journal, and there was a lot about the chemistry.
And I just wanted to be sure that I did my homework and did it right.
And after that, I was very fortunate because I got accepted.
And then in 1982, I applied for a fellowship in economics in California, and we were looking for a young graduate student to work on the basic economics of the Soviet Union.
I worked on the Soviet economics department, and then after that I worked for a number of years on the American economics department at Berkeley.
So that was a very important experience.
In addition to that, in 1982 I did an internship at the Brookings Institution, where I worked at the Center for Economic Policy Research.
The other thing I was given was a $1,500 stipend, which is the amount that a graduate student from Berkeley would receive if they applied to work in the Federal Reserve.
So the money that I was getting from Berkeley was an enormous benefit for me.
And in 1985, when I was applying to graduate schools, the National Bureau of Economic Research gave me the opportunity to be the lead economist on a research project.
And that was an important experience because I really wanted to get a graduate degree in economics and to do that, to do it in an economics department.
So it really was a combination of things that were very important to me.
But one of those things was that I went into economics as a teenager because I was an economic and political science major, and that was also a very valuable thing to me because I wanted that experience.
But the other thing that I think really was very important, and was something that was important to a lot, was to learn to apply to other departments.
I also wanted to learn what was going on in academia, because I felt that a lot was happening in the world and in the academy that I didn’t understand.
So, I took a lot in undergrad.
I read a ton of books and I worked really hard on the homework assignments.
And one of my professors in graduate school told me that I should go into the business of applying to economics departments. And it
