Ph.D. or Postdoc?
I emailed Bryan Caplan and Peter Boettke at George Mason University about getting my Ph.D. in economics there. Boettke suggested postdoc work instead, but Caplan thinks an economics Ph.D. is the best thing in the world. Certainly, after reading his post, I agree. What I need to find out, though, is the benefits of each. And I need to find this out before I start taking the undergrad classes needed to get into the Ph.D. program.
