  1. Of all the goods and services in the Real world, Why does Prof. Alex TABARROK is using Slaves for application of elasticity of demand?

    Prof. Tabarrok used the Slave market to explain the demand and supply of slaves in the discussion of Elasticity of Demand. Why do you talk about this sensitive topic in college classes? Do you want people to be reminded of slavery? It is amazing to me at this point in our life an econ professor is using the price and quantity of slaves to explain elasticity. It is very insensitive to students of color. I will never use any of his video going forward.

  2. Tech Issue with Videos

    I’m not sure why, but your videos will not play on my IPhone SE. I have never had an issue getting a video to play on my phone, so not sure what’s going on. Disappointing though, because your videos look great. Thx

  3. Unusual labeling of the axes in the AD/AS diagrams

    Your website uses inflation instead of price level, and economic growth instead of real GDP. I always tell my students to avoid this, and that they will get deductions for it in their standardized exams. I have not seen it anywhere else, and since MRU videos are generally of very high quality, I am curious to know why this choice was made. What are the pros and cons of this labeling? Thanks for a great website!

  5. More female economists in your videos

    Your "Economists in the Wild" videos are 78% men. Why? Is it a "Male Economists in the Wild" series? If so, maybe you should update the title to reflect that.

  6. You need to introduce the 4 sectors of American Economic system ie 1. the Household, 2 Government sector, 3, the Business, and 4. the Global

    Every Economic activity begins with the Household sector as the Household is made up of people, consumers, and producers of goods and services, people who become politicians and work for the government, the business, and international/global sectors.

    The Government collects taxes from the people and uses such money in providing health, safety, serve and protect us from within and outside.

    The Business sector recruits people from the Household as employees for the production of goods services, pays them their salaries, they in turn use such salaries as consumers to buy goods and services from the business sector.

    The Household also…

  7. Certificate sharing

    Currently, the certificates cannot be shared on other platforms such as Linkedin. The URL provided on the certificate is only accessible when a user has logged into his account. It would have been great if you could provide a shareable certificate URL and certificate ID. This would help students showcase their learnings and add authenticity.

  10. 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!

  11. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. "As the price goes down, the demand for oil increases." NO no non nononoooooooo As the price changes, the QUANTITY of demand changes NOT D

    1:42 in... "As the price goes down, the demand for oil increases." NO no non nononoooooooo As the price changes, the QUANTITY of demand changes NOT Demand itself. Non-price factors change demand (as with supply).

  19. 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.
