Being in the age of the internet, we have the luxury of YouTube. Over time, university lecturers have recorded their lectures and posted them on the internet.

There’s Value in the Real Thing…
Obviously, we value the piece of paper that comes from investing time and money. There’s also value in who teaches your classes. In the long run, it might be better to just bite the bullet and go back to school to get a degree in economics. If you’re wanting to brush up on your economics skills or even if you’re just curious about economics, I hope that this article helps.
If you’re currently studying economics in college, then I highly suggest that you use this to help you get a better grade in your classes. My suggested strategy in doing this is that you try to watch as much as you can during your academic breaks before actually taking the classes. Doing this will make the actual class feel more like review, because it is, and you will theoretically be able to do better in the long run.
