An idea worth spreading

Nepom is an idea worth spreading. Nepom is an acronymous to "Nucleo de Estudos de Politica Monetaria". Nepom was created a few years ago by me and by my former student Pedro H.C.G. Sant'Anna. Since its creation, Nepom has proven itself a very efficient way to teach Economics to undergraduates. Not only economic theory, not only quantitative methods, not only economic history, but all of them at the same time. The Nepom has been a success among our students and now, other universities are starting to try to create similar groups.
