TOP REVIEWS FROM THE POWER OF MACROECONOMICS: ECONOMIC PRINCIPLES IN THE REAL WORLD
I think the best part of this course is its diversity. The course is so well structured that theories of several important school of economics are discussed, with their applications in the history.
Great course which learns you macroeconomics through US economy history and real economic situations. it's really help you to understand why things happen in the world from economic stand point.
This course is very easy to understand for a total novice like me. There is still more to learn about macroeconomics but this course provides the necessary background to give you a head start!
This was an instructive course with lots of examples of the US economy and with a great explanation and tests, nevertheless sometimes I lacked some examples from the other parts of the world.
Good course, though could use a few more examples to work over math and graphical concepts. Shuffle the answers to quiz questions more. When in doubt, guessing "A" was nearly always correct.
The course is so well-organized that helps me to accomplish a systematic understanding about the field. Beyond that, thanks to the Professor, I now feel more keen on learning about this.
Great program. I spent most of my summer and fall completing this great online course. Now I understand a little bit better the Fiscal Policy and Monetary policy!\n\nThanks\n\nAlejandro.
is pretty difficult for a non- economics student , but the presentation is really clear and easy to understand. spend more than the stated time required to learn the course module.
This is a Great Course, if anyone wanted to learn the art of applying macroeconomic principles in the real world scenarios then get enrolled to thid course...\n\nThanks Coursera...
Too many subjects in one course: suggest to split the course into two.\n\nUpdate content with current/recent cases.\n\nConsider adding open end & reflective questions to the tests
Very fruitful contents, and Professor explains everything with the good examples, so it was really easy to understand. I am thinking to enroll the MicroEcon course of him, too!
This was a great refresher for me - have not studied macro for 20 years in undergrad courses. I found the material to be logical and easy to conceptualize as a result.
Great Class!\n\nI like that the Professor encourages understanding the concept than memorizing.\n\nIn the long run, understanding will always triumph over memorizing.
Professor Navarro delivers the contents of this course in both a concise and digestible manner. Great learning experience and introduction to the world of Macro.
Great content and organization. One star off because lectures tend to be dense with information and there is a lack of repetition for the more complex concepts.
Very good course. Practical and clear. A little too much math on some very specific lessons that frankly are too abstract but in general, its a great course.
Very well designed class that provided excellent lessons into fundamental macroeconomic principles as well as very good real life connections and examples.
Very detailed course with examples and appropriate explanations . Ideal for anyone willing to understand macroeconomics and its working in the real world.
It was really good.\n\nThe professor explains the concepts in a easy and understandable way. However, a previous background in economics would be better.
Thank You Prof. Peter, Thank You UCI and Special Thanks to Coursera to Provide me this opportunity , always want to stay connect with all, Thank you.
