Learning Economics?

Unread postby Rhiannon » Wed Jan 29, 2003 6:25 pm

Does anyone know any good sources (be they books or internet sites) that teach economics, beyond the basic ideas? I'm woefully inadequate in my economics knowledge and would like to improve without taking four courses in college.

Web Ec looks great (http://www.helsinki.fi/WebEc/WebEc.html). I'll start playing around there.

What about books? Anyone have any recommendations (I don't care if they're old textbooks from your classes either, if you found them to be good, please let me know)...

Do you know what the [EDIT] function is? If you do, use it and delete one of those posts above. If you dont, i dont care, learn.

Which country are you in? The books about economics differ country by country and they need to be adjusted to that.
If I'm posting here, it means I'm procrastinating.

USA, live in California. Sorry, didn't think about that.

Is there any subject in particular that you are interested in or need research on? I have been, if I may say so, a rather apt pupil of economic studies, and have read/written extensively on various topics and fields of consideration. If you need any materials, I would be more than happy to provide you with some valuable materials that has helped me and even some of my own works.

Actually, KangXi, just about anything. I barely understand economics at all. I have a limited grasp of supply and demand and stocks, but beyond that, I hardly know much at all. I need like a beginner's guide, first of all. After that, I'd know better what more specific things I'd need to know.

I have written an Economics Primer in the form of a relatively extensive outline of basic economic concepts. I did this for a class that I was teaching. If you could provide me with your email address, I would be more than happy to send it to you.
