Course Description

Why is Coursera offering this course free of charge? Why is the divorce rate so high? Why do we have so much pollution? Would legalizing marijuana lead to a reduction in crime? Why is a college education a smart investment, or is it? Why would a draft only damage the army? In the last 50 years economists have tackled some of the most interesting and important questions for humanity!

Fantastic course. As the name says - it's the basics, the fundamentals, but they are presented thoroughly, with ample examples, so that even a total lay person in terms of microeconomics will enjoy the knowledge and the course. This is my second course from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and I'll definitely continue to take part in the courses organized by that university, because the videos are prepared in such a way that it's a pleasure to watch and a pleasure to learn. I believe the course team did a fantastic job.

I really enjoyed taking this course. All the Microeconomics points are presented thoroughly accompanied with interesting examples. One of my favourite moments of this course was how the content was presented to us in a play form.

I really enjoyed the course. Dr. José J. Vázquez-Cognet was able to explain the concepts really well and the content was very interesting. On the other hand, some of the quiz questions were a bit too easy.

The subject was completely new for me. I had no prior experience. But the way the subject was taught was elegant. The tutorials provided after every module was very enriching. The way the professor taught us the way trade is made and is useful, using the live class audience was awesome. The live examples from the sandwich shop and farmers' market provided us first hand experience. It never looked like a virtual class. Thoroughly enjoyed the class. Thanks!!!

I had interest in economics, but no formal training. The course came in three different modules, a speedy 4 week compressed course, an 8 week course (basically the 4 week course taken slower) and a 16 week course that covered everything in greater detail. I took the 4 week course, as I'm taking a few other Coursera courses at the same time (including another Microeconomics course, which Prof Vasquez's course was far superior to). Having just finished it, I wish I'd taken the 16 week course. The professor is smart, knowledgeable and a pleasure to learn from. Highly recommended if you have any interest in economics.

Great introduction to economics, taught in a way that the principles were very easy to understand. Professor Vazquez is very engaging, and the video lectures are well done. It does, and should take some study. My only regret; I didn't enroll in Signature Track, I would have liked to have gotten a verifiable certificate for my work. I highly recommend this great course.

This is an excellent course. The workload depends on whether you choose to participate in the discussion forums and do the final project. I really enjoyed the interviews and the real-life explanations of economics.

Covers the basics in a very engaging and accessible manner, never a dull moment. Do be careful when doing the exercises, slow and easy is best. When you're done with the work, have a beer and some barbecue at the Black Dog Smoke & Ale House :)

Excellent course. I didn't have any background in the field. Just was curious about economics. Very well structured course,with many paths of completion to choose(from taking only the exams,to peer reviews and forum reviews) Real life examples.Prof transfered the course from the class to real life and made it more easy to understand to people who have no idea in economics. This course will help you in your life.
