    • Simple video without music and animation

      Simple video without music and animation

      Simple video without music and animation would be fast to make and cost less. I would like to see video like Khan academy which are like simple black board learning in a class room. like this one : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ShzPtU7IOXs

      • 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.

        https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKEq5iEmMSo
        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.…

              • 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!

                • more detail explanation with assumption of theory are required

                  I have gone through most videos. Its very short.. it would be better if you provide detail explanation with assumption and conclusion of theory..

                      • 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!

                        • Please make sure that the information in the practice questions is correct

                          Please make sure that the information in the practice questions is correct. I just tried to answer one of the practice questions on GDP and it marked my correct answer wrong. I double checked my answer in the book and I was correct and the website was wrong. This problem could cause people to learn false information. :/

                            Thank you for submitting your concern about the GDP practice question. We take making sure that all of our questions are correct very seriously. We have reviewed all the questions on GDP and can verify that they are all correct. If you can let me know which is the question you think is wrong, we can try address it specifically.

                            There is one question, the second question in the “Splitting GDP” video, that is a bit of trick question. Maybe this is the one you are referring to. It may seem that the answer should be (e), but it is actually (d). The reason is that not all of government spending is counted in GDP; only government purchases are. For example, social security payouts are government expenses but not purchases, and these are not counted toward GDP. The video explains why this is so: GDP count goods…

                          • 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 need help on how to write a proper college paper/academic paper/thesis

                                      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.
