Very informative course to get a basic understanding of the pivotal and indispensable concepts of Macroeconomics and to embark on a life-long journey of studying the tenets of this beautiful science.
The course helps you to have an insight about a lot of concpets in a really less amount of time. Moreover, most of the concepts are being explained with real life examples in a very well planned way

tl;dr : I recommend it.
Good introduction to macroeconomics. Gives lots of insights and mechanisms. Long course, but it was necessary. A second part would be much appreciated, maybe with more econometrics to give a measure to all these effects.

Brilliant course; really well structured. Modules aren't too arduous - just the right amount of time spent on each, and applicable to the real world. As a European, I would have preferred more global, less US-centric examples/case studies.

Either lecture slides should be provided or the lecture should be held in continuous writing format(in which the instructor explains things by writing) instead of explaining using pre-prepared slide(saves time and helps in note-making)

Enjoyable and informative course. Possible room for improvement areas were that it felt as though the information and delivery were dated and a few of the quiz questions had 2 correct answers (unless I was very much mistaken)

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.

Very concise introduction into macroeconomics. The powerpoint presentation can however still be improved. Sometimes reading directly from the slides makes it hard for the learner to follow the lecture.

A great introductory course which covers almost all of the important topics of Macroeconomics. However, it is entirely US-centric and presents a very dim picture in the lecture on developing economies.

good study for everyone!
could be improved the vizualization: there's only slides and voice over them.
the connection to the history facts permit a deeper understanding of the subject!

I think the best part of this course is its diversity. The course is so well structured that theories of several important school of economics are discussed, with their applications in the history.

Good course, though could use a few more examples to work over math and graphical concepts. Shuffle the answers to quiz questions more. When in doubt, guessing "A" was nearly always correct.

PPts could have been provided for future references and was very interesting to learn the principles with examples. Some pdfs could have been provided for numericals as support material.

Great program. I spent most of my summer and fall completing this great online course. Now I understand a little bit better the Fiscal Policy and Monetary policy!

The course is definitely helpful in introducing the macroeconomics topics, but Self Study and further reading on the topics is required to completely understand the topics.

very lucid explanation of macro economics concepts and very rational linkage with the Historical perspective, can include some more insight on developing country like India
创建者 Vincent K•
Too many subjects in one course: suggest to split the course into two.
Update content with current/recent cases.
Consider adding open end & reflective questions to the tests

Great content and organization. One star off because lectures tend to be dense with information and there is a lack of repetition for the more complex concepts.
创建者 Alain S•
I f you are a beginner and willing to learn the basic principles of macro economics in the most simple and effective way this is the ideal course
创建者 Laurence C•
Liked the historical approach. Also a lot of practical examples. Unfortunately the video format is less lively than a lecture recorded in public.

1. This course is not easy for a person without systematic training on economics. 2. This course provides a lot of information for the learner.
创建者 Chu X•
This course illustrated the basic concepts of macroeconomics, and it would help you to learn deeper. But, the teching way is a little boring.
创建者 Kaushik R•
Good primer on various Macroeconomic concepts, with real world examples. The examples/ anecdotes are however restricted mainly to the USA.
创建者 Jobby J•
In the Quiz section, wrong answers should have the explanation with solutions given, for the candidate to understand where he went wrong.
创建者 Apeksha D•
A very good and informative course! Really helpful examples and extremely clear concepts for people being introduced to Economics!
创建者 Rebecca B•
Good--some explanations were lacking or he jumped to some answers without explaining how he got there, but it was good overall.

Would have liked some applicable projects -- otherwise, fun class. The material was well taught and simple to understand.
