If it is not too much a contradiction in terms...which small liberal arts school has the best/most highly regarded economics department?...one that would have perhaps slightly less of a theoretical slant and more of a business-practical emphasis in its curriculum? Or well-respected faculty? Williams? Amherst? Bowdoin? Middlebury? etc.?
Thanks for your input.

If you have a daughter, Wellesley has an excellent economics department; has turned out most of the country's leading women economists.

Thank you for your response...though my question is for my son.

Williams probably has the strongest LAC econ program.
It also has the best placement in econ-related jobs (it has an excellent alumn network...one of the best).

take a look at Oberlin.

Middlebury has an excellent program as well. David Colander teaches there. He wrote the most widely used introductory college level econ textbook (Principles of Economics (McGraw-Hill)).

Claremont-McKenna touts their econ program. However, it is also called the most capitalist school in America so you might expect their economics to have a certain tilt.

I also reccomed checking out Claremont-McKenna.
And on the same note, check out Pomona. Hard social sciences are less of a specific focus like at CM, but Pomona is very good in *every* subject.
