“It was at St. Mary's that I developed both a strong grounding in economics and the writing and analytical tools that have allowed me to make a career explaining the subject to readers. The college offered a unique combination of intellectual vigor and close-knit collaboration and support. My time there made me a better thinker, a better writer, and a better person.”
