Principles of Economics

Stanford University via edX

Overview

The early part of the course focuses on microeconomic analysis including the behavior of consumers and firms. We analyze markets for goods and services and policy choices that affect these markets. The later part of the course moves on to macroeconomic concepts such as national production, employment, inflation and interest rates. We explore models that determine long-run growth and short-term fluctuations in national economies. We then discuss the role of government regulation, monetary policy, and fiscal policy.

  • Mirza completed this course, spending 1 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.

    Note: I have previously studied some micro- and macroeconomics, many of these concepts and ideas are not new to me. Additionally, I did not work through all of the material in the course, more like 30% of it. The course is a fairly wide introduction...
  • Antoine completed this course and found the course difficulty to be easy.

    Great course. Either for micro or macroeconomics. Even if Pr Taylor is famous for his Taylor rule on monetary policy, the course is targeted to a wide audience with few knowledge in economics. Highly recommended.
  • Eric G.

    Eric completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.

    Comprehensive economics course from a noted economist : the inventor of the Taylor rule for central banks. Worth seeking out if it is repeated.

    Very comprehensive course into economics, highly recommended if you're interested in macro and micro economics. Quizzes and exercises are also challenging and informative.
