As reported today by Business Insider, Harvard students are planning to walk out of economist Gregory Mankiw’s Econ 10 class on tomorrow, Wednesday, November 2, to show solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street Movement.

A prominent adherent of Milton Friedman, Mankiw, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers under President George W. Bush and the author of a leading economics textbook, has been critical of the Occupy Wall Street protests on his blog — and a student email cites his "biased instruction matter" as a reason for the walk-out.
