Microeconomics Principles

Most people make the incorrect assumption that economics is ONLY the study of money. My primary goal in this course is to shatter this belief. During this course, we will be addressing the above questions as well as many more relating to: -the environment -love and marriage -crime -labor markets -education -politics -sports -business My main goal is to show you the way economists think and how to use this analytical system to answer questions related not only to these and other important human issues but to anything you end up doing with your life after this class. After all, as you will quickly find out, I believe that everything is economics!

easy to understand

This course is very easy to understand and it used a lot of daily life examples to explain the concept.

The course was very informative, full of real life examples and all the principles covered were explained in a way which I, a beginner to economics, found very easy to understand.

The material is presented in a detailed way that makes it easy to understand even if you're new to economics, using a local sandwich business as a real life case study was really cool, plenty of practice questions to test your knowledge.

Very well structured course,with many paths of completion to choose(from taking only the exams,to peer reviews and forum reviews) Real life examples.Prof transfered the course from the class to real life and made it more easy to understand to people who have no idea in economics.

When you're done with the work, have a beer and some barbecue at the Black Dog Smoke & Ale House :) Great introduction to economics, taught in a way that the principles were very easy to understand.

This Course is easy to understand with professional lecturer Very good economics course!

real life

Works through content by providing real life examples first and then going back into the supporting theory, which helps illustrate the latter.

Real life examples helped me to relate it with my own experiences, short length videos and interactive questions in between the course helped in keeping me completely focused on the course.
