  1. Guaranteed Annual Income

    The concept of a GAI has been around for some time and was tested in Dauphin, Manitoba in the mid 1970s. Now it is being tried again in Ontario and Prince Edward Island and one party in British Columbia is musing about it as part of its platform for next year's provincial election. Friedman and Hayek both thought it was a good idea but implementation is where the challenges lie.

  3. law and economics

    I'm a lawyer. I have learned that the common law is an expression of microeconomics principles, for the most part. I've enjoyed the coursera course "property and liability," which introduces law and economics. But it's not enough! It would be great if MRU could put on such a course. BTW: Thanks for the courses so far, which I enjoy tremendously. John R Done, Kingston, ON Canada

  4. Mathematical Economics

    While statistics has now become an irreplacable component of economic study, mathematical analysis in academic content is growing exponentially. Mathematical modelling is particularly helpful in analysing a number of aspects of economic theory.

    Students need to learn mathematical application in economics and MRU is the only platform capable of teaching the same in an engaging manner. Please consider. Would be sharing the academic resources available to me as well.

    Proposed syllabus:

    Techniques of constrained optimisation.
    This is a rigorous treatment of the mathematical techniques used for solving constrained optimisation problems, which are basic tools of economic modelling. Topics include: Definitions…

  6. Are some economic activities better done by government?

    A lot of people I know are convinced that government is a better provider of certain services the private enterprise. Where do you draw that line (if at all)? What logical steps can you go through to make a decision on this question?

  11. How can real wages stagnate w/ technology improvements?

    I would really like to see video on the stagnation of real wages over the last 40 yrs. I hear about this all the time and since I could not buy an internet connection, cell phone, car w/ airbags, a pill that replaces surgery, a cordless drill, sushi in my small town grocery etc, etc in 1976 the real wage growth for those products is infinite. I believe the things I could buy (gasoline, bread, machined parts) are also better, cheaper and/or more varied today.

  15. The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money by John Maynard Keynes

    Hi,it would be great if you could make videos explaining all the chapters of this so very important book of Keynes.
    You guys explain things in simple ways using funny animations, making every course interesting.I request you to please make a course asap on this one, especially at a time when Keynes' idea of fiscal policy is being used extensively all over the world during this Coronavirus Pandemic.

  17. Explore/discuss two-sided markets.

    Two-sided markets created by information platforms increasingly are a feature of how Internet services are monetized -- e.g. similar to how subscribers and advertisers are two sides of a "newspaper platform." Users and advertisers are two sides of the Google platform (albeit one side doesn't subscribe), similar to how viewers and advertisers were two sides of a TV station's business model. How do you use demand/supply curves to analyze and understand two-sided markets? What are the implications for price discrimination? What are the implications for monopoly? What are the implications for dynamic competition if an industry sector is prohibited from…

  18. Fact-checking Marx

    Karl Marx's writings are still very popular, despite the many factual errors he made. Go through some of the most well-known passages of his books and explain what he got wrong.

    Or if this too specific, political or otherwise controversial, maybe make a series on famous economists like Smith, Hayek, Friedman, Mises, and include a video on Marx, pointing out his mistakes.
