The course was very interesting and relevant but a lot of data is outdated, some links are not working or have been changed. I would advise to review the course according to the latest developments.

This is the best Coursera course I have taken for its breadth of content knowledge and also the clarify in which Prof Sachs taught and organized it. Truly meaningful and great learning experience.

From the lesson

Professor Sachs provides a history of economic development, starting with the Industrial Revolution and ending with the current state of modern economic growth.
