Description

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.

Econmics, 3rd Edition

What did you love best about Economics, 3rd Edition?

I enjoyed this lecture series. Enough to listen a second time; both for better understanding and for more recall for conversations with friends. The narration was great. Professor Taylor is a gifted speaker. My only negative comment is that this series was produced at least 10 years ago. Audible's release date makes it seem more current.

Really enjoyed this course

What made the experience of listening to Economics, 3rd Edition the most enjoyable?

I've been looking for a way to digest a lot of the economic principles out there and I found it in this course. I consider myself pretty business and economics savvy and wanted something that could help me get my mind around some of the fundamentals that I glazed over in college. The format of this lecture was way better than any book I could find (especially seeing as I kept falling asleep while reading them).

I recommend this course.

Solid Foundation

What made the experience of listening to Economics, 3rd Edition the most enjoyable?

The course was well organized and provided a useful PDF.

What did you like best about this story?

The best parts of the 'story' were the lectures on trade, fiscal policy, and the summary of the final lecture.

Have you listened to any of Professor Timothy Taylor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first lecture that I've listened to by Professor Taylor.

If you could give Economics, 3rd Edition a new subtitle, what would it be?

Economics, 3rd Edition 2005

Any additional comments?

This course was for the individual seeking a basic level of sophistication in economic matters. I definitely fit that bill. As with the many other Great Courses, this one delivered as promised. It was well organized with each topic built on top of each other and the PDF provided proved to be an excellent pre-read. The 1st 18 lectures focused on microeconomics and the 2nd 18 focused on macroeconomics.

I was particularly interested in topics of Labor Markets, Antitrust Policy, Poverty and Welfare, Fiscal Policy, and Free Trade. I finished the course with a stronger appreciation for the 'package of ingredients' required for economic growth: building human capital, build physical capital, creating new technologies, and maintaining strong legal and financial infrastructure for supporting markets.

The only issue I have is that this course was first published in 2005 which means no analysis is provided concerning the 2008 Financial Crisis. It would have been great to get his perspective within these lectures. Fortunately, I now feel that I have a strong enough economic foundation to see seek other texts that cover this period.

From a math hater, highly recomended

Would you listen to Economics, 3rd Edition again? Why?

Absolutely, I learned so much about controlling finances and maneuvering the stock market, retirement tips, etc.

Any additional comments?

I had just got a job as a bank teller, so I decided it might be prudent to learn a little about the financial industry. To my surprise, Professor Taylor was an absolute joy to listen to. He had a way of explaining things that appealed to a layman like myself, and I walked away the better for it.

Excellent summary

Very easy to follow and a great introduction to the world of economics. Rather long, but worth it if you want to catch onto economics. Professor Timothy Taylor is excellent at presenting the stuff and I must admit I was lost sometimes, which indicates to me I probably should do a second listening. Excellent course.

Prescient

Should be required listening for all voters and politicians alike. Developed and produced before the financial crisis, before the Trump protectionist folly, and before the new hard left wave approaching -- the insights are prescient. To wit: speaking in 2004 Taylor remarks that the housing appears to be in a bubble and he expects it to end poorly. Note: this wasn't political leanings or preference. Rather, it was just hard nosed understanding of economic principles. Alas, I would love to hear Professor Taylor produce a 4th edition that would discuss the previous 10 years of economic history.

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.
