The course helps you to have an insight about a lot of concpets in a really less amount of time. Moreover, most of the concepts are being explained with real life examples in a very well planned way

I really liked this course and would recommend it to anyone who would like to extend his/her macroeconomic knowledge base. The lectures build upon each other in a very comprehensive way and Dr. Navarro gives great examples whenever explaining the theory. I also like Dr. Navarro’s voice and pronunciation; it is very easy to listen to him. The only point of critique I can think of is the pace of the lectures in some parts of the lectures; it is sometimes a bit fast. All in all it was a great course! I rediscovered my passion for economics.

A very interesting course on the fundamentals of Macroeconomics, providing a most useful insight into the major Schools and their principles. The course helps in understanding the most important functions of macroeconomics. It boosts reading the financial environment and the analysis of the specific macroeconomic context. The pace of delivery was perfectly tuned, it was rich in information, the lecturer has been understandable and communicative in terms of distance learning, the examples have been abundant. Highly recommended.

A great course! Whether you are simply interested in applying some concepts into your life, or a student (like myself) looking to brush up/or learn economics, this is a great intro course! I especially love the module overview at the beginning of each week. I usually copy and paste "key questions" into Evernote, and answer them when I'm watching the videos. Then I would review the Q&A before and after each quiz. It turns out to work great for me! Thanks for making this course available on Coursera!

Well done. Logical progression of learning, good examples, clearly spoken. There were quite a few spots where sound or video cut out for several minutes while the other (either sound or video) continued to work. Not sure if it was my computer or a course issue. One quiz (i believe week 10 or 11) had a question with two right answers. You could either choose 3) all of the above or 4) answers 1&2 (which were both correct). I believe '4' was the correct answer. Very well created overall...nice job.

This was a great course. I have taken the microeconomics and personal finance course but this one was by far the best. I really enjoyed learning the concepts that explain a lot of what I read in the papers. My favorite subject was how the Fed puts money into or removes money from the economy by buying or selling government bonds and what effect that and other Fed policies have on the economy. In any case this was a very neat course that was way more interesting than I thought.

This course is very easy to understand for a total novice like me. There is still more to learn about macroeconomics but this course provides the necessary background to give you a head start!
Agood course to have a good foundation of macroeconomics. Enjoyed the theory behind supply & demand, implications of political and economic policies and how it drives the actions of governments. I could recommend this course to anyone interested for a good foundation in macroeconomics

I really enjoyed and learned a lot from this course in Macroeconomics on Coursera. What I really loved about this course is the way it is structured around the discussion of major macroeconomic concepts in a historical context and how the subject has evolved and continues to evolve. Short videos and knowledge test quizzes add to the fun. Prof. Peter Navarro does a fantastic job here!

Before joining this course on Coursera, I had a little knowledge of economics. This course helped me to conceptualize the basics of macroeconomics. Now I am able to correlate the business environment or decisions to my job, salary hikes & other factors.
Thanks to Faculty members from University of California, Irvine to provide such valuable & informative course content.

Very interesting review of Macroeconomics for newcomers. It's long, it's meant for non economists and it still full of interesting details. You can tell there is some of his view of the world in it but he is fair to show you all of the main schools and how they interact with each other using historic examples. I wrote about 120 pages of notes while doing this course.

Astounding! Even though I have passed quite a few Economics classes in university, from Introductory level to Intermediate and Advanced, this course provided really valuable insights, presented in the best possible manner, with rich real-world background, history, application.
I definitely recommend it to anyone interested in business, world economy or even politics.

Useful for the beginners with no economic background. English is a great advantage, since one has to check the terms in one's own language, developing language skills. The only drawback for me is that by the time I finished some lessons (which could take up to five days), I had forgotten a lot of material (especially the formulas), so I had to go back and revise.

Thanks for this course, I really learned something about macroeconomics, though it's just the basic principles, also I have to admit this course is not as easy as I thought, it did take me some efforts to digest the content and to pass it. Now I'm looking forward to further study for this discipline. I hope these knowledge can be useful in my future career.

Professor Navarro used very docile, easy to understand language and the course flowed very smoothly. His way of relating Macroeconomics with real world events is commendable. He's definitely one of the best instructors I have ever got in my life.
This was most satisfying of my accomplishments that stemmed from my own interest. I'm very happy to complete it.

I loved this course! Every subject was treated very throughly and with a historical view that allows you to understand major events in world's history. Also, every concept was explained very clearly through simple words and examples. I would recommend this course to any economics fan, such as myself, that has no prior studies on the matter.

An excellent introduction to macroeconomics that boils down the basics. A great supplement for someone learning to invest or thinking about where the economy is going and their future place in it. The only criticism is that it is, understandably, United States of America centric (considering recorded economic history and the professor).

A very interesting course that teaches Macroeconomics through history and practical examples that makes you see economics not as a boring subject but as something to conceptualize. I really enjoyed the course and I encourage any one looking to understand macroeconomics to enroll for the course.

Really nice work, explaining macroeconomics in the context of evolution made it interesting and easy to understand. great work professor.
Tried to understand the macroeconomics from the textbooks, it was increasingly difficult until the context of evolution was not accompanied to the theories.

Great course. I specially did this course during CovID-19 lockdown. The US / India governments were already taking a lot of measures to fight the economic contraction on a daily basis. The examples given in this course helped me co-relate the concepts taught with real-world actions taken.
