How To Contact Me
Graduate program inquiries. As of this writing (early 2022) I am the Director of Graduate Studies for our department. If you’re interested in our graduate program, please read this first. My standard response to informational inquiries about the graduate program is a short email with information found on that page. You can save some time by clicking the link now.
Twitter. You can tweet at me @LanceBachmeier. I still do things the way they were done back in the early days of Twitter, when it was standard practice to follow back as long as they’re not a racist or some other form of lunatic. (That, along with interacting with others, sadly seems to have died.) I promptly unfollow anyone that sends me DMs asking me to buy products, like them on Facebook, or any of that.
Email. You can send an email to my work address.
Textbook sales/attempts to get money out of students. Any email messages you send to me in this regard will be immediately deleted. I’m too busy to read the 482nd set of marketing materials someone sent me this month. If you’ve sent me more than three pieces of email, I almost certainly have a filter that deletes your messages automatically. I don’t care about your product.
Just in case you’re wondering, I’m not interested in meeting with you to discuss a principles of macroeconomics textbook that I can use in my graduate time series course, and I’m not going to schedule a 20 minute phone chat to talk about my teaching needs. I make exceptions for anyone paying my standard consulting rate of $250/hour, billed in one hour increments, as long as payment is made in advance.
Snail Mail. You can send snail mail to:
Department of Economics
Waters Hall 321
Kansas State University
Manhattan, KS 66506
By Phone. Just kidding. Please don’t do that. The bottom dwellers from Top Hat call me, interrupt me while I’m preparing for class, and try high-pressure sales tactics, even though I’ve repeatedly told them to stop. If you’re a low-life like Top Hat, I promise to treat you the same way.
