While Professor Taylor's initial jokes about economics fall flat, his attempt to humanize "the dismal science" is evident throughout this clear and methodical set of lectures. Taylor is well aware of the difficulty in thinking like an economist and breaks down complex concepts into more accessible units. He provides examples, works through both the math and the reasoning, and is always quick to link abstract relationships to the real world. Throughout these 36 lectures, Taylor sounds so excited about supply and demand that it would be hard for even the most economics-shy listener not to warm to the topic--and maybe think a little more clearly about life as a result.
