Northeastern University – Professor Richard Swasey
In 2012 I took Intro to Finance with Richard Swasey. One day in discussion about the national debt, he says “the only way to fix this country’s national debt is to raise taxes.” I raised my hand and asked about cutting spending, and he looked at me like I had a second head. Throughout the remaining semester I made a point of making conservative remarks in class every day about the economy, while the rest of the class didn’t even participate. He ended up giving me an awful participation grade, resulting in a C for the course.
