    Description

    When it comes to economics and economic theory, a few thinkers dominate the landscape.

    Adam Smith, Karl Marx, Alfred Marshall, John Maynard Keynes, and a handful of others have shaped the world of economics and influenced our lives.

    These 10 lectures acquaint you with the thoughts, theories, and lives of these great economists.

    You'll grasp the guiding principles of economics through a better understanding of the economists who developed them. In this broad span of time since these thinkers first presented their ideas, economic issues and concerns have changed greatly - but core economic doctrine remains. These lectures provide a fresh take on how various economic theories were formed and how subsequent economists fine-tuned those theories. They show that there are valuable lessons to be learned from history's great economists, whether their theories have held up over time, required revision, or been discredited in practice. And as Professor Taylor leads you through those theories, you'll come away with insight about why some current disputes over economic policy have been continual sources of argument over the last several centuries. By providing a glimpse into the minds of the geniuses who laid the foundations of modern economics, Professor Taylor offers new ideas and perspectives to enhance your understanding of the subject. More than dull numbers and graphs, this series focuses on personalities and brings economics to life.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    Who knew economics could be so captivating?

    This is the second series I've listened to by Tim Taylor and I have to rank him right up there with the best of The Great Courses professors. He is easy to listen to. -- energetic, passionate about the subject, and able to explain anything in the simplest of terms.

    This series takes you on a marvelously captivating walk through the history of economic thought -- how great minds evolved our thinking to understand what an economy was and what made it work. So from a historical perspective, it provides a fascinating perspective on our evolution as a society.

    From an economic and political perspective you will gain wonderful insights. I dare say your friends will think twice about quoting Adam Smith or Karl Marx in your presence once you've finished listening to this; and when politicians quote John Maynard Keynes or Milton Friedman, you'll know which parts are established fact, and which parts remain controversial theory.

    these lectures were recorded before the financial crisis of the late 2000s, and I think that's a good thing. You will understand the prevailing theories of macroeconomics and decide for yourself how it applies today.

    Old lectures

    Be warned this is very pro Keynesian. Almost no time is given to any problem with Keynes and he gets Say’s law completely wrong

    A fine basic survey: a home run for Prof. Taylor

    This professor is passionate, obviously engaged with his subject, clear and accessible. This survey moves across many big books full of ideas pretty quickly, so naturally it does not get into the more abstract and technical fine points. But to readily get a good basic feel for these ideas and thinkers (and their writing, which is critiqued a bit, and explained in light of the prevalent ideas of their times), one couldn't start at a better place.

    Good insights and overview, but ideological.

    This is a good overview of economic history, but one what has a bias in favor of the strengths of contemporary economics. The speaker funnels the history of economics through the paradigm of contemporary Economics. Everyone who has been beneficial to that paradigm is progressive, everyone who is skeptical of it is fatally flawed. At the end of the course the speaker says something telling along the lines of “economists roll their eyes when these kinds of criticism are debated”. I suspect that all this eye rolling shows is that economists are stuck in their ways. A good start, but you’ll probably have to also read something from the more skeptical side if you want to come away with an unbiased perspective.

    Impress EVERYONE at the party. Remarkable Course.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Not only do I recommend this course, friends are forced to listen to it on road trips. More often they not, they sign up for Audible to download the full course. Incredibly creative, and intriguing introduction to Economics for beginners and unbelievable tidbits for those who have studied it for years. This is riveting material, that speaks for itself.

    What does Professor Timothy Taylor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His ability to articulate complex ideas is outstanding. Taylor is one of those professors who is extremely passionate about the stories he tells. That passion makes his delivery impossible to ignore. He has an ability to keep me focused and engaged for a long period of time.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had 12 hours in the day to listen to all of it, I would. Professor Taylor's delivery keeps you engaged for as long as you have to listen. This is one of those courses that you will listen to multiple times. I love the ability to pick up anywhere in the course and learn something new.

    Any additional comments?

    You'll find yourself bringing up stories from this course in multiple social settings. It has made me look like the smartest guy at parties, dinners and the office multiple times. Must read.

    Great but lacking content

    I get that he had to cram a lot into a little time, but I can't help but feel like he doesn't give enough credit to economists in the 20th century- such as Coase or Ostrom.

    a heading is optional (error: no heading)

    I bought this to refresh my understanding of the history of liberal economics. In many ways it serves it's purpose. But I am left wondering: why even include Marx if you fundamentally don't understand it?

    There are moments here when Taylor shows his cards (celebrating the supposedly broader thinking of Malthus over the "academic like Ricardo, for instance, which seems to indicate more which Taylor styles himself off of). But no where else is he so fundamentally incorrect in his reading.
