If you know nothing at all about economics, this will make for a fascinating introduction to many of the central ideas. If you already know the basics, you might have to make a rational decision about the value of some guy telling you what you already know. I listened while painting a bedroom, because I already think like an economist enough to recognize that the opportunity costs associated with listening to it while doing something else were considerably lower than the cost of reading a book ...more

To my mind, Randall Bartlett is one of the greatest teachers I've come across in my life so far:

1) he is convincing with his body language, personal stories, vivid metaphors and examples;
2) Randall structures the whole course in simple way and it will last in your memory forever. He equips with toolkit of an economist step by step and in finale you are able to see the World from the perspective of an economist.

N.B. it's a great foundation for further studies. Highly recommend.

This is a class offered by The great Courses. I really enjoyed both the professor and the subject matter. I liked his examples and stories that made economic thinking come alive for me--It is not a technical book on economics, but a manual on how to apply economic thinking to everyday decisions. I hope I will be able to remember it long enough to do more sensible things. If anyone would like to borrow the CD's I would be happy to share.

An excellent, succinct lecture series on economic thinking. The practical examples make it easy to understand and apply. This is a must listen for those who like Freakonomics, Nudge, or other popular economics books.

Listened to it on my commute to work. The last examples deal with traffic...appropriate. He's a good lecturer, sounded a lot like a subdued Lewis Black. A good guide to thinking like an economist.
