  1. Econometrics

    Can you please consider doing a course in econometrics? This is something all students struggle with.

    It would especially be great if you could do something on Time Series. Very few schools offer courses in time series econometrics!

  2. Course on Stata , SAS programming.

    Could we have a course that teaches statistical and econometric programming in Stata and SAS? And hence, explaining econometric techniques and time series techniques using these statistical soft-wares.
    Thank You

  3. Quantitative Analysis Course

    The existing courses are great. The next challenge is perhaps the greatest. I believe that an understanding of economics requires some mathematical analysis, a topic that creates some trepidation in many learners. A course on quantitative analysis that does not require a PhD in mathematics would be a boon.

  4. What are the different schools of economic thought?

    What are the different schools of economic thought?

    Namely: neoclassical economics, monetarism, Keynesian economics, new classical economics, Austrian School, etc...

    Each theory contributes to a different mindset.

  7. It would be great to have a course on Econometrics

    I have a basic economics background but would love to be able to better understand important indicators and where they come from.

  9. 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. Economics of public wealth in the United States

    What public wealth do we the people of the United States own? Our federal and state governments by our consent administer our public wealth, But what is actually on our public balance sheet? And is it managed in our best interest? Who decides how much we get paid for things such as mineral resources? What about selling off assets to pay off the national debt?

  14. Do banks really create money (credit) out of "thin air"?

    There's much debate and confusion surrounding the idea that private banks can create money (credit) out of "thin air".

    "...contrary to what people might think, a bank doesn't make loans, by taking the deposits of a client and then lending those deposits out. Instead, the bank creates money out of thin air."
    http://www.businessinsider.com/where-does-money-come-from-2014-4

    While Krugman says:
    "I often see the view that banks can create credit out of thin air...This is all wrong...Bank loan officers can’t just issue checks out of thin air."

  15. 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…
