  2. Better spam control and author authentication needed

    Comments and discussions under the videos could be very useful only if they are kept free from spam. Spammers often post links and ads. One way could be to designate some long time or serious users as moderators.

    PS: In case you start such a program, I would love to help with moderation of content

  3. Please in a video analyze the efficacy of income redistribution

    Politicians (mostly left leaning) have for years harped on the dangers and social injustice of income inequality and are forever suggesting we "level the playing field" by compelling through taxation etc. the "rich" to "pay their fair share". Would you please analyze economically the benefits and drawbacks of such a strategy. Perhaps also discuss why the inequality occurs in the first place. Talent may be distributed on a bell curve but outcomes follow the Pareto curve. Why? Perhaps this is your opportunity for a future Nobel!

  4. 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.

  5. Expanding the reach to people by collaborating with big video blogger

    I have come across so many vblog in YouTube and I hope that you could collaborate with these people in order to gain viewers, because i think this course is very informative yet i happen to see very few subscribers.

  6. Structural and cyclical deficits, discretionary fiscal policy and automatic stabilizer

    I would like to see the videos in the future cover the concept of structural and cyclical deficits, discretionary fiscal policy and automatic stabilizer.

  7. I need a solid resource on 'the philosophy of science'

    Everyone knows this famous raking of so called sciences: https://xkcd.com/435/

    Good question, where does economics fit in? And what is science?

    How can I participate in so called scientific debate without knowing what science is, in the first place?

    I have a feeling that in economics in general you have much story telling and anecdotes, as compared to the amount of 'science' - whatever that word really means.

    From 14:26 in the video Stanford professors Dave Evans and Bill Burnett argue that in college you learn how to answer questions. In graduate school, you learn how to ask them.…

  8. I need help on how to write a proper college paper/academic paper/thesis

    I mean, thesis in the college level, not PhD level. Or how do you call it? I am not a native English speaker.

  13. I think you guys should add a course (yes a whole course) on Health Economics.

    It is a huge topic but also a very important/applicable one. Most economics schools that I've seen have a whole class to study Health Economics. Usually it is taught as an upper-level course but so are Developmental Economics and International Finance and you already have courses on those. It is a very highly debated topic - often argued by people who have no idea what they're talking about and could use some education!

  14. Indicate lenght of the chapters/videos

    I have started the Development Economics course. The same way it is very useful to know that it is a 25.5 video hours course, it would be very useful and simple to implement knowing how long are every chapter or even every video. It would allow users to better plan their study plan.

    Congrats for the site!

  15. Please make sure that the information in the practice questions is correct

    Please make sure that the information in the practice questions is correct. I just tried to answer one of the practice questions on GDP and it marked my correct answer wrong. I double checked my answer in the book and I was correct and the website was wrong. This problem could cause people to learn false information. :/

    Thank you for submitting your concern about the GDP practice question. We take making sure that all of our questions are correct very seriously. We have reviewed all the questions on GDP and can verify that they are all correct. If you can let me know which is the question you think is wrong, we can try address it specifically.

    There is one question, the second question in the “Splitting GDP” video, that is a bit of trick question. Maybe this is the one you are referring to. It may seem that the answer should be (e), but it is actually (d). The reason is that not all of government spending is counted in GDP; only government purchases are. For example, social security payouts are government expenses but not purchases, and these are not counted toward GDP. The video explains why this is so: GDP count goods…

  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.

  17. Add section numbers to each module

    It is difficult to assign individual videos to students. Would be great to number each section and sub-section for easy reference (i.e. The Demand Curve lecture should be 2.1)

  19. 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..

  20. Using MRU with flipped classroom; date for Macro?

    Your videos are great and I use them in my classroom and post them on my course website as a kind of hybrid flipped classroom.

    When will you have videos up for principles of macro? Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing! We’ll be in contact with you as we’re very interested in how our videos are working in a flipped model. You can send feedback directly to me at roman at mruniversity dot com as well.

    As for Macro, it’s on deck for this year. I’ll add you to the professor list for course announcements so that you get notified.
