This blog was originally created for my students studying intermediate-level macroeconomics at the University of California at Berkeley. It was mainly set up to increase their understanding of the subject, introduce them to the wider world of economics, as it were, and serve as a repository for handouts, lecture slides, etc. It has now gained a life of its own, and it now serves that function for all the courses I am teaching currently.

Feel free to leave a comment anywhere on this blog — particularly if you’re currently my student. I have been known to give extra credit to more involved students…

More about my research interests and me can be found on my website.

    Hi Arnav,

    Great blog! I have never thought about the stigma of online education before reading your post. I have my own biases about online education, but I think more and more people are learning via the internet. Reaching and educating the masses via online services is a great way to go, especially with the rising cost of education.

    I tried to learn programming iPhone applications from one of Stanford’s free classes once (offered through iTunes) and I think I got through one class. I guess it’s better suited to people who are more motivated to learn on their own.

    BTW, why can’t I subscribe to this blog using RSS reader?

    Thanks, looking forward to a brilliant quarter!

    Hai – Thanks for your comment. When talking about online education I was thinking of an actual person at the other end. But what you are talking about also applies, of course – though I am not sure how effective it is.

    The feed URL is http://blog.arnavsheth.net/feed/, but if you drag the link to this blog into any regular feed reader (such as Google Reader) it should automatically show up. Let me know if you need help with that.
