Acting like an Economist

Taught by Professor Randall Bartlett | 33 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Economics & Finance Courses

I find Professor Bartlett rather engaging and interesting. There's a nice, dry humor and no hint of pretense in his style. You'll learn a nice framework of thinking from these twelve lectures.
