Introduction to Classical Economics
#1
Last week, with the death of Jude Wanniski, I feared that his site might be closed down and the extensive course material that was available to students all over the world, would also dissappear. So, I went and downloaded every lesson that he has given to the students at Supply-Side University over the past year.

I first took his free course almost eight years ago, when he was just beginning to offer it to the public. I managed to download and print every lesson that he had to offer. However, as time progressed, his lessons increased in number AND quality. Thus his latest lesson plans are more up to date, salient, and detailed than the earlier ones, and I have also saved them for the members here.

My plans are to present a course lesson plan on a weekly basis in hopes that others here will take the time to read them and comment, or ask question. Both WmLambert and I are graduates of Supply-Side University, and we will be more than willing to help with those who may may wish clarification on any particular lesson.

I greatly encourage each and every member to take the time to study them, as you will never find another series of lessons on economics that are as extensive, easy to understane, or more user friendly than these. And in truth, if you are going to learn anything about The Way The World REALLY Works, this is the best way to do it.

So, each week will be presented in "sticky" form, and numbered as he presented the course. I sincerely hope that you enjoy this series.

Also, let me add that this is not a political issue, in which only Republicans or Democrats are presenting their views. It simply transcends political ideology and presents basic application to 'real world' issues, that only economics can do. If you are looking for partasianship here, you will not find it. So, take this as a further education that is important if you wish to gain a deeper understanding of the Political Economy. It is indeed important if things are to be logically understood.

Awaiting the first lesson and commentary. The lessons by themselves mean less without a good discussion of the presentation. Jude Wanniski was onto something - and the ultimate Supply-side model came about in fits and starts - only reaching full fruition with Mundel and Laffer coming together. Some of the info can be argued - so agreeing on what is mutually understood will be our goal.

Sound very interesting, reading the first lesson now. Btw, bit inactive here lately; new school (Tilburg University), new city, new people, no Internet access yet.

Bill, the first lesson is already up for reading. I am going to count this one as last week's lesson, as it is really just an introductory lesson.

You can simply go to the "Economics" Section and look at the top of the section. Each lesson will be numbered and will be a "sticky", so you can get them at the very top of the sectionn. Somehow, I will have to come up with a way not to clutter the section up, but have not come up with a means yet.

Yeah, I read it, but I was hoping for a commentary thread to parallel it.

the problem is that we get too many threads going that way. I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to keep these things in order and at the same time allow for commentary.

However, you can comment at the end of the article as it is now. Why not try that out?
