  2. Money, investment, savings: the oil for economic wheels

    Direct trade is good for small, introductory examples, but real economies run on more finely grained money. Trace how money is earned, spent, saved, invested, spent some more, and grows in the process.

    Outstanding lectures so far, thank you. Please continue.

    The basics of Western economics are not taught, at least not often, to students in (still Communist) China and India, and immigrants are sometimes baffled by market manipulations, loans, leases, and so forth. Even technical young people, in computer-related industries and IT, often lack the backgrounds in basic Econ to, e.g., understand their mortgages, margin accounts at brokerages, and…

    We have a way to do this already! If you go to mruniversity.com and look at any video page, you should see a “translate” button under the video.

    Clicking on it will take you to a tool that allows you to add subtitles. We greatly appreciate any additions we get!

    For example, here’s the link for the first video in our Micro course. http://www.amara.org/en/videos/AfeywxXg5Wel/info/introduction-to-economics/

  9. Misleading wording in one quiz question

    Hi, I just took the quiz following the video "A price is a signal wrapped up in an incentive." The last phrase in the answer to question 6 describes the equilibrium price as "desired by no one." What is meant here is "the equilibrium price is not the desire of any one person," but the way it's written can just as easily be interpreted as "the equilibrium price is quite disliked by everyone." It's ambiguous that way. One way to clear up the ambiguity is just to change it to "…desired by no one person." Indeed, that wording appears in…

  10. Improving long term learning and comprehension of material

    The videos and questions are engaging, but without frequent and spaced reinforcement of the concepts and terminology, the ideas will not embed in learners long term memory. students take a multiple choice question and pass but do they really understand the concepts. This is the biggest failure of MOOCs. I recommend including on the website some space repetitive questioning of the material to help push the ideas from short term memory to long term memory. There is a lot to earn from language learning and flashcard websites and apps like Anki, Duolingo and Memrise. You can even develop on Memrise…

    Thank you Bryon! No surprise that such a smart comment comes from a fellow Hokie!

    I agree that there is much to be done to provide practice materials to reinforce concepts. That’s definitely on our radar to improve.

    I’ll check out those apps you mentioned. I appreciate the feedback – feel free to email me directly at roman at mruniversity dot com.

  12. Love this course! When will section on insurance and moral hazard be complete?

    Expand discussion of why health care is burdened with market failures (adverse selection, information asymmetry, moral hazard) and whether introducing high deductible insurance plans will encourage price transparency, thus bringing health costs back to earth.

    Hi Bill,
    Thanks for the comment – getting the International Finance exam up is on our list. We’re a bit behind I know. We are a very small team.

    I’m always curious to learn more about what folks are doing with our materials – would you mind sharing with me what you do with our certificate?

    I’ll post a note here when the exam is up. Should be within the next few months.

    Thanks.

  15. Speak to someone at eBay following effective steps:

    EBay customers need to adopt the effective steps if they wish to speak to someone at eBay. The ecommerce platform based on the internet is always prone to the impact of technical glitches. Issues like inaccessibility to the eBay account may appear in front of them. Thus, taking initiatives for instant action to resolve the problems is crucial under all circumstances. https://www.primotechy.com/blog/how-can-i-speak-to-someone-at-ebay/

  17. Law training on real cases

    On the portal https://onlinedivorcer.com you can file for divorce online. If the results of these divorce proceedings (no names, only general data) were published on the site, it would help not only clients but also students who study in the field of family law.

  20. How does barcode inventory in QuickBooks work?

    How does a barcode inventory system work?
    Before implementing a QuickBooks Barcode Inventory system, it’s important to determine whether it’s right for your business. If you manage any type of physical inventory, you’ll likely benefit from this system.

    You store inventory in a warehouse: Managing hundreds or even thousands of items in a warehouse can be daunting without a system to track them.
    Your vendors or retailers require barcodes: Even if you can manage without a barcode inventory system, the vendors or retailers you work with will require barcodes for the items they purchase from you.
