too much in 9 reviews

Don't cost too much time each week and you learn a lot.

I felt overwhelmed by too much information all of a sudden in each lesson.

Great refreshment or intermediary/intro course- too much focus on the US system at first and perhaps a disproportionate focus on schools of thought, but extremely useful, pragmatic and learner friendly.

Too much contents in short lectures.

\- Too much concentration on US history.

Moreover, the course is centered too much on the USA: the same historical examples are repeated multiple times, instead of providing some variety of global examples to help understand the concepts better.

For a European student, this also has too much emphasis on the US economy and who-did-what rather than what was done.

But the blame on China for the sluggish US and world economy is very biased and selectively blind, because Prof. Peter Navarro is Trump's economic advisor.

Peter Navarro and really appreciate his teaching, but I don't think mixing too much personal bias into the public course is responsible and objective, and that's why I took two stars off.

Thank you Coursera and Professor Peter Navarro.

Prof. Peter Navarro does a fantastic job here!

I've listened to several of Peter Navarro's courses before on audio book, and found this one to be equally enjoyable.
