  1. I am seriously amazed by the course content. I must say i have started falling in love with economics. Practice questions after every video

    Practice questions after every video affirms our understanding on the subject. Thank you for making it so simple for us and that too for no cost. You are really amazing!

  2. economists in the wild contradiction?

    https://mru.org/courses/economists-wild/rise-superstar-firms-and-fall-labor-share

    In this video, Autor discusses reasons for Labor's falling share of income.
    He mentions Technology, Lack of Competition, Superstar Firms.

    Then he says "I believe there will be plenty of work." but doesn't support the claim, since, well, he admits it's a belief.

    Then a few seconds later he says "There will be plenty of work, we just need to make sure people have the skills to do it" as if his stated prior belief is a fact, and as if acquiring those in-demand skills is even possible for most people.

    In the video he doesn't seem to mention…

  4. Please include more ideological diversity in the macro section

    There's a wide range of views on macroeconomics. Right now, this series features the views of two libertarian (right) leaning economists.

    It would be better if, say, a conservative economist was paired with a liberal economist, so students could get a better view of the range of perspectives in the field. Without this, the information has a strong bias, but the students aren't necessarily aware of it. It also doesn't represent the discipline as well.

    It's better to alert people to where there are matters of debate, present the best case for the differing views and then let students make…

  8. Nominal vs Real GDP quiz

    The wording in this question could lead people to the wrong answer:
    "True or false: real GDP is always larger than real GDP per capita."

    If the population is 1, then real GDP = real GDP per capita. As unlikely of a scenario that is...technically the answer is false. It is not always larger. It cannot be smaller because you can't have a partial person. But you could hypothetically have a single person. Maybe you should place the assumption in the question.

  10. Give option to auto-play next video like in YouTube or Khan Academy.

    This will greatly save time when watching an entire topic.

  12. Econometrics Course

    What a disappointment this "course" is. The waste of resources and time on cute production values, at the expense of real content, is unbelievable. For example, why should anyone wait several months and watch a couple of elaborately produced animated videos just to learn how to say "all other things being equal" in Latin? For that matter who at this level of learning should have to know any Latin at all? Why should I be amused by a professor wearing a rag around his forehead? The idea that a teacher feels the need to go to these lengths to dumb…

  14. Josh Angrist Econometrics Videos

    The videos that are up are great. But the wait in between episodes is frustrating and makes it harder to use the existing ones as a teaching resource (this is optional extra study for my high school students). Is there a timeline for the remaining videos?

  18. Video on the Green New Deal Proposal

    As we see coming from Congress as well as candidates, the "Green New Deal" proposal is a hot topic, including in my own Economics course. Could you guys possibly make a video about it?

  19. The term "world price," different definition on MRU?

    I'm seeing the term "world price" used on quizzes and exams but not readily searchable in your videos.

    Does WP = MR on MRU?

    Tricky, because outside of MRU it seems to have an international-trade focused meaning.

  20. Please add the total time to complete each course in the course description

    Right now, we can't find out how long it would take to finish a certain course. It would be nice if you guys added the total length of the course in the description. That way it would be easier to plan our study along the way and it would give me an idea of how long would it take a student to finish a course.
