Instructors, check out my database of Econ 101 examples and other fun resources!
If you’ve arrived at this page, you’re probably either a student, an instructor, or an individual just interested in learning (or relearning) some basic economics. Well, you’ve come to the right place. In partnership with YouTube and About.com, I am working on putting together a bunch of course materials in both video and written form that are freely available online.
If you want to go through the content in a structured way, check out one of the following features:
- Econ 101 of the Day – a new article (or two) posted Monday-Thursday and corresponding practice problems posted on Fridays, going in the order of a typical microeconomics course (macroeconomics to follow if I don’t keel over first). You can also see the Econ 101 of the Day in the sidebar to the left.
- Practice Problem of the Day – a new practice problem uploaded to YouTube every day, going in the order of a typical microeconomics course (again, macroeconomics to follow if I don’t keep over first). You can also see the practice problem of the day in the sidebar to the right or get notified of new videos by subscribing on YouTube.
- A Complete Roadmap to Microeconomics 101 – Micro 101 broken down into units and modular topics, along with links for various forms of content (articles, videos, practice problems, and blog posts) added as content is completed.
If you just feel like browsing, check out the following:

Lastly, in order to make access to the videos and articles as easy as possible, I’ve made it so that you can search by topic, course, or textbook chapter. (Note: This cataloging is still somewhat of a work in progress, so use one of the links above as well so you can be sure to not miss anything!)
