This course introduces both macroeconomics and microeconomics. At a business and professional level, macroeconomics can help to answer questions such as the following: How much should I manufacture this month? How much inventory should I maintain? At a personal level: Should I switch jobs - or ask for a raise? Should I buy a house now or
wait until next year? Should I get a variable or fixed-rate mortgage? And what about my investments for retirement? In contrast, microeconomics can help to answer the following questions: How can my firm minimize its costs and increase its profits? What prices should I charge for my products? Will I really be better off financially if I quit my job now and go back for an MBA degree? What kind of career should I be preparing myself for? What about that new refrigerator or automobile I want to buy?

This is a very well thought out execution of this material. The associated online website is a plus as well.

Only listened to first episode so far...

But Peter Navarro seems to do a good job at presenting the material and the syllabus as described in the first episode is well-laid-out. I'm looking forward to the remaining lectures.
