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.

Economic History
I studied economics at different universities and in different countries, but I never learned much about economic history. We hardly ever discussed the success or failure of different economic policies in history. As a result, I and many of my fellow students had the feeling of being equipped with many tools but not knowing what to use them for.
I think that the combination of the way the MRU teaches ideas, the illustrative and very interesting classes, and the economic history course would be of great value to current and future economists. I can imagine that this course can be…

You need to do a course on MMT and why their approach is incorrect
MMT now more relevant than Marx.
Course needed to go through Mosler, Wray, Mitchell, Keltons Minsky approach and consequences.
As they have a MMT text book and extensive literature and research it is high time to be addressed.

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

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…3 votes 
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?

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.

Factchecking Marx
Karl Marx's writings are still very popular, despite the many factual errors he made. Go through some of the most wellknown 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.
