Macroeconomics video blogs for EC1200

Paul Tilley

The following videos were produced by Mary Foodie. She teaches
economics in the United States and does a great job at making a
relatively challenging subject more easy to understand.
These videos have a US bent to them but the theory as it applies
to our situation in Canada is the same. Take some time to review
the videos for the approporate section that you are covering
in the course - I think you will find it time well spent!
