How can we improve Marginal Revolution University?

Add a course on public choice economics

Please add a course on public choice economics. There's an excellent list of MRU courses for learning to think like an economist. But strongly believe another function of these courses could/should be to make us better, more knowledgeable citizens regarding public policy issues. And that means we need a course in public choice economics — "politics without the romance" — i.e., what economic analysis can tell us about the political decision-making process. That way we'll be better able to determine whether free-market or government-driven solutions would likely work better for addressing particular issues. And we'll each have a better "BS detector" for understanding what politicians and partisans tell us about issues — much of which is clearly at odds with the basic economics taught in other MRU courses!
