  2. Supply chain videos

    Videos on supply chain - raw meterial, capital goods, production, distribution , retail and reverse logistics will be helpful too, overall you have one of the most articulate and most informative websites out there. You are an inspiration for me to write blogs on retail topics, to share knowledge uninterrupted

  3. I wouls

    I would add more questions and real world exercises after each video, so that we can better understand theory in action.

  4. Can you make a program for volunteers to translate your videos?

    We have a way to do this already! If you go to mruniversity.com and look at any video page, you should see a “translate” button under the video.

    Clicking on it will take you to a tool that allows you to add subtitles. We greatly appreciate any additions we get!

    For example, here’s the link for the first video in our Micro course. http://www.amara.org/en/videos/AfeywxXg5Wel/info/introduction-to-economics/

  6. Can you learn about effectiveness of price stabalization measure by the government to stabalize prices of agri commodities?

    Can you learn about effectiveness of price stabalization measure by the government to stabalize prices of agri commodities? In india onion prices have huge implication for rural economy and politics. Indian government is setting up price stabalization mechanism . They will buy onion when prices fall and release the stock when prices shoot up. What does the economic theory and international experience say about such measures? I am based in India . milind.murugkar@gmail.com Can MRU help us in understanding the issue better ? Milind Murugkar

  7. Awesome Site!!!

    Without a doubt THE best way to learn about economics! All of the videos are very interesting, easy to understand and very slick with high production values.

    Most importantly, it gives the student of economics a very solid intuitive grasp of the subject.

    Many thanks for making this open and freely available to the public.

  8. Contemporary economists

    Maybe some videos about the most influential contemporary economists and their ideas, would be an interesting addition. And the main schools of thoughts of our times and how are they, in practice, influence the governance and the markets. Best Regards, Alexandra Popa

    Hi Bill,
    Thanks for the comment – getting the International Finance exam up is on our list. We’re a bit behind I know. We are a very small team.

    I’m always curious to learn more about what folks are doing with our materials – would you mind sharing with me what you do with our certificate?

    I’ll post a note here when the exam is up. Should be within the next few months.

    Thanks.

    Roman

  11. Compress Apple Podcast Videos

    Hi Guys,

    You´re doing such a great Job, congratulations! I watched all videos from Microeconomics course and Daily Economics.

    I had a hard time downloading the videos from Apples Podcast and play them on my iPad, because they are really big. A 3 minute video can be 700 MB size, which is huge, consuming lot of storage on the device, and making it imposible to streaming if you don't have a really fast internet connection.

    It would be great if you can compress them.

  12. Release New Material on a Schedule

    You asked for feedback about the Principles of Economics: Microeconomics class.

    I know it's too late in the class for this to change, but in future classes it would be nice if there was some predetermined schedule for the release of new material. Long periods of time went by in the class with no new material and no idea when it would be released.

    A release schedule when the class starts would be very helpful.

    Thanks for the great material. So many of these topics and the way they apply to real-life situations are more complex than they appear on…

    We don’t have a course specifically designed for that age but I think you could find useful content in both Everyday Economics and Principles. I have a 7 year old and he enjoys them!

    Here are some ideas. Drop us a note at support@mruniversity.com if you have a specific topic in mind. If we don’t have it we might be able to suggest some other places.

  15. I need a solid resource on 'the philosophy of science'

    Everyone knows this famous raking of so called sciences: https://xkcd.com/435/

    Good question, where does economics fit in? And what is science?

    How can I participate in so called scientific debate without knowing what science is, in the first place?

    I have a feeling that in economics in general you have much story telling and anecdotes, as compared to the amount of 'science' - whatever that word really means.

    From 14:26 in the video Stanford professors Dave Evans and Bill Burnett argue that in college you learn how to answer questions. In graduate school, you learn how to ask them.…

  18. Love this course! When will section on insurance and moral hazard be complete?

    Expand discussion of why health care is burdened with market failures (adverse selection, information asymmetry, moral hazard) and whether introducing high deductible insurance plans will encourage price transparency, thus bringing health costs back to earth.

  19. Need some female faces!

    I am looking through MRU's videos and I am excited to include some in my courses here at St. Catherine University. Perhaps because I teach at a women's college, I am struck by the lack of female economists in the videos. For that matter, there is a lack of diversity on many dimensions. So many good economists out there! Can you tap some who will show my students that their faces are reflected in our field? Thanks!!

  20. List of high production value videos?

    I would love if you could compile and post a list of the high production value videos (i.e. not the voice over power point style ones). Thanks!
