Para quién es esta clase: This course is for those who are curious about their economy, who want to have a better understanding of markets, the economic roles of the state, and how communities create economic value. It is also meant for those who look for solid arguments for economic policy alternatives to free market-oriented policies. And it is mean for those who are dissatisfied with their standard training in economics and would like to learn about different economic theories than the dominant one, called neoclassical economics. Finally, this course is designed for learners worldwide, with examples from all over the world, from Asia to Europe and the US, and from Africa to Latin America. The course can be taken by anyone with secondary-school level knowledge about economics and mathematics. There is no requirement of previous training in economics or statistics. The course can be done successfully using the online material only. But there is a course book available for those who like to have reading material next to the videos. The course book provides more information than we could get into the videos, but it is entirely possible and doable to follow the course without the book. For the learners of this MOOC there is a voucher available for the Paperback version of the course book (20% discount). Just go to the website and fill in the discount code: FLR40. You can also find an E-Book version on the following website: ( Unfortunately there is no discount available for the E-Book version)
