Course begins September 23rd

This is a free, ten-week, not-for-credit online course offered by Hillsdale College. With introductory and concluding lectures by Hillsdale College President Larry P. Arnn, the eight lectures at its core--by Gary Wolfram, the William E. Simon Professor of Economics and Public Policy at Hillsdale College--will focus on the foundational principles of the free market. Topics will include the relationship of supply and demand, the “information problem” behind the failure of central planning, the rise of macroeconomics under the influence of John Maynard Keynes, and the 2008 financial crisis.

Lectures will be released weekly and archived to view on-demand, and the lecturers will participate in weekly Q&A sessions on the lecture topics. Registered participants will also have access to readings and quizzes, a study guide, and discussion boards.
