As part of our “marketing” effort to get freshmen into ec 10, Harvard’s introductory economics course, the ec 10 staff and I are trying to construct a list of famous alums of the course. Here is the list we have put together so far:

Steve Ballmer
Ben Bernanke
Lloyd Blankfein
Ryan Fitzpatrick
Jeremy Lin
Sheryl Sandberg
Eduardo Saverin
Chuck Schumer
Cameron Winklevoss
Tyler Winklevoss
Mark Zuckerberg

I don’t know half of the above people, but except for Jeremy Lin, I’m not sure this is good marketing…

UPDATE: I live in Nashville, so I should add Ryan Fitzpatrick to the list of safe bragging…

    They might not want to lead with this list.

    The Winklevoss twins claim to own around 1% of all the Bitcoins in existence.
