Are you interested in obtaining a solid background in economics?

This economics course offers a thorough view of markets, including their strengths and failures. You will learn how to view markets from an economist’s perspective to help you better understand the most relevant economic problems.

This course follows a rigorous approach that combines visual arguments with realistic examples to help you connect core economic concepts with your own experience.

At the end of this course, you will be able to answer questions like:


  • Why do most people in rich countries have a mortgage and why is it a problem that those in the developing world do not?
  • Why is the environment one of the most challenging problems of modern societies?
  • How could we estimate the economic impact of cannabis legalization?

The only required knowledge is certain familiarity with graph reading and basic high school mathematics.
