Beschreibung

Economic issues are active in our lives every day. However, when the subject of economics comes up in conversation or on the news, we can find ourselves longing for a more sophisticated understanding of the fundamentals of economics.
These thirty-six lectures will help you think about and discuss economic issues that affect you and the nation every day-interest rates, unemployment, personal investing, budget deficits, globalization, and many more-with a greater level of knowledge and sophistication. They require no special or advanced knowledge of mathematics. Instead, you'll learn economics through intuitive explanations and in plain English.
Professor Taylor's first 18 lectures focus on "microeconomics," or looking at economics "from the bottom up." You'll study the behavior of individuals, households, and firms; and how they interact in markets for goods, labor, and saving and investment. Topics in microeconomics include: supply and demand in the free market, monopolies and regulated competition, and public goods.
The second eighteen lectures cover "macroeconomics," or studying the economy "from the top down." Here you will examine the factors that help economists evaluate the economy on a national and global scale. Among these macroeconomic issues are: common ways the government taxes and spends, the relationship between employment and inflation, and international exchange rates.
Throughout, Professor Taylor helps you apply what you are learning to many of today's most frequently discussed and misunderstood issues.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Too low level for me

In contrast to other audio books published by The Great Courses this one was far too low level for me. It is (only) all about demand and demand quantity in the areas of goods, labor and money so I missed the intellectual stimulus. May be that's because it is only some 4 hrs long (the other ones I have are app. 12 hrs). However, for a very brief and basic introduction it is good.
