Comment:
not useful to write anything since he is retired... BUT PROPS to prof. Rowley. BY FAR the most knowledgeable and intelligent economic prof in the whole 3 years. McGill just lost a great asset. Good Retirement. It's really something to be in one of his class. Makes you learn so much more than normal econ classes.

Comment:
Incredible professor. Shows the 'other side' of economics & covers some very interesting material. Follow his study tips, keep up with the eNotes (which are a bit annoying), and you'll do fine. Be sure to get his feedback when working on your essay.

Comment:
Smartest prof I have ever had. Great lectures but exams are pure memorization. Chauvinistic attitude is a farce, but some people don't see that and are turned off by it.

Comment:
His methods are unusual but they work. He usualy gives simple analogies and simple explanations but if you think about them further, there's more to what hes saying and he knows it. He knows what he's teaching and he's very intelligent, not to mention funny and sarcastic. Everyone should do his classes!

Comment:
This is the 'expand your mind' class of the honours course, it does an okay job, but his methods of evaluation are a bit sketchy. Supposed to be opening our minds but he gives vanilla memorization exams. Can be hard to approach but nice if he knows you, still though, tends to talk over you.

A memorable professor with intelligence, attitude, and funny stories. Worked my butt off and learned a lot from him, most of it good, but he always kept me guessing about the grade. Still there are better researchers out there and he could be a bit more humble...

Comment:
I bet he's best friends with Dickinson. except he thinks he dresses better. just as proud as the rest of the male-dominant econ dept at mcgill, talks about his accomplishments and family a lot and just brushes over important material, but overall keeps the subject matter interesting

Certainly no doubt the best professor I have ever had. He makes you think and understand unlike other professors who could care less. He command on the subject and his comments make the class interesting and challenging. One can certainly learn a lot

Potentially one of the best professors in the department. He knows what he's talking about and will always help out students - you can tell by the huge lines at his door during office hours. He is however somewhat ambiguous about marks
