I didn't expect to stick with this course - I'm not particularly interested in what I thought "economics" meant - but I was curious to see what Oxford was doing for a mooc. it turned out to be delightful, interesting, and highly informative about a subject i'd always thought was tedious and boring. It started with storytelling, then added a few technical terms as we went on, giving historical examples, and adding in the professor's personal experience with certain situations. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be better informed about what their government is doing, either from the perspective of a developing country, or from a stronger nation that can impact, for better or worse, the developing world, so we can vote responsibly on these issues.
