  1. Please in a video analyze the efficacy of income redistribution

    Politicians (mostly left leaning) have for years harped on the dangers and social injustice of income inequality and are forever suggesting we "level the playing field" by compelling through taxation etc. the "rich" to "pay their fair share". Would you please analyze economically the benefits and drawbacks of such a strategy. Perhaps also discuss why the inequality occurs in the first place. Talent may be distributed on a bell curve but outcomes follow the Pareto curve. Why? Perhaps this is your opportunity for a future Nobel!

        • Indicate lenght of the chapters/videos

          I have started the Development Economics course. The same way it is very useful to know that it is a 25.5 video hours course, it would be very useful and simple to implement knowing how long are every chapter or even every video. It would allow users to better plan their study plan.

          Congrats for the site!

          • When is the international finance exam coming out?

            Last feedback that was responded to was in February 2015. There is still no exam? Will there be one?

                    I mean, thesis in the college level, not PhD level. Or how do you call it? I am not a native English speaker.

                    • Better spam control and author authentication needed

                      Comments and discussions under the videos could be very useful only if they are kept free from spam. Spammers often post links and ads. One way could be to designate some long time or serious users as moderators.

                      PS: In case you start such a program, I would love to help with moderation of content

                      • Structural and cyclical deficits, discretionary fiscal policy and automatic stabilizer

                        I would like to see the videos in the future cover the concept of structural and cyclical deficits, discretionary fiscal policy and automatic stabilizer.

                        • 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…

                          • 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.

                              Your videos are great and I use them in my classroom and post them on my course website as a kind of hybrid flipped classroom.

                              When will you have videos up for principles of macro? Thanks!

                                Thanks for sharing! We’ll be in contact with you as we’re very interested in how our videos are working in a flipped model. You can send feedback directly to me at roman at mruniversity dot com as well.

                                As for Macro, it’s on deck for this year. I’ll add you to the professor list for course announcements so that you get notified.

                                  put numbers on the "Description Title" (not the file name) so that we can hear them in the order Alex intended.

                                  • Ditch the ties on the graphic of sellers in the equilibrium lesson

                                    In the Equilibrium video, for example, all of the sellers are wearing ties. The ties imply that the sellers are all men. This (a) is not true and (b) makes women feel like they don't belong in business. Although I think that the content of the video is great, I teach at a women's college where my students are likely to protest at including such a stereotyped depiction. (The buyers are all wearing pants, so could be interpreted to be male as well, but since they are not wearing ties they don't look as obviously gendered.)
