  1. Remove the drowning chicks section from the Price Ceiling video

    I can't show this to my skeptical friends, because they will be distracted by this appeal to emotion. They will correctly object that drowning millions of chicks may have been more humane than raising them under standard conditions. So if I am talking about price ceilings with a friend and I send them this video, I expect it to backfire.

  3. 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.

    We don’t have a course specifically designed for that age but I think you could find useful content in both Everyday Economics and Principles. I have a 7 year old and he enjoys them!

    Here are some ideas. Drop us a note at support@mruniversity.com if you have a specific topic in mind. If we don’t have it we might be able to suggest some other places.

  6. Thank you

    Im not sure if you know how your organization has impacted me. I was not aware of economics until I started your courses and began reading books. I then decided to go to school for economics. I am now in my last class in graduate school finishing an MBA with a concentration in economics. When I textbooks failed to arrive on time, I ordered your books on macro and micro economics. With your textbook, I was able to pass the course with 96%.

    Your textbooks are very helpful and easy to read. Your approach to teaching economics is phenomenal. I…

  7. Need some female faces!

    I am looking through MRU's videos and I am excited to include some in my courses here at St. Catherine University. Perhaps because I teach at a women's college, I am struck by the lack of female economists in the videos. For that matter, there is a lack of diversity on many dimensions. So many good economists out there! Can you tap some who will show my students that their faces are reflected in our field? Thanks!!

  8. Out of Order

    For those that put the podcasts on mobile devices, the order of each unit is lost. The fix is to put a number in the Description Title.

  11. When is the international finance exam coming out?

    Last feedback that was responded to was in February 2015. There is still no exam? Will there be one?

  12. Supplement practice materials

    It would be helpful for you to link your lecture videos to useful websites with more practice materials to supplement the videos.

  13. Offer course credits via Edx or Coursera

    It will be great if the courses are offered on Edx and Coursera platforms as that might allow more students to learn about your material. Also having an Edx or Coursera will allow you to leverage many things related to verifiation.

  16. 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.

  18. more detail explanation with assumption of theory are required

    I have gone through most videos. Its very short.. it would be better if you provide detail explanation with assumption and conclusion of theory..

  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.
