There was an overarching review of Economics, but most importantly it was a practical course with a lot of opportunity to process information and craft solutions within every level of economy. I enjoyed all the readings that were presented and would like to revisit as needed. Each of the instructors were very knowledgeable in the subject.

Very thorough, well organized course that takes you through the basics of economic and societal relationships and the history of economics leading up to the challenges of the modern, globalized market and community. Multi-media components - articles, videos, podcasts, interviews - keep the learner engaged. The time commitment is somewhat understated if learners are expected to get through all required and suggested readings. Shame that certificates are not offered on completion of the course.
