    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Ebert is a very engaged professor. She makes sure that you understand the material being discussed, so you actually learn from this course. I never thought I would like economics especially the development of it, but Dr. Ebert really makes the development of the United States economy interesting and easy to understand.

    Course highlights:

    The most fascinating aspect of the United States economy is the concept of economies of scale. This concept is lowering the cost of production by finding a way to mass produce the product. This is how factories work. For example, factories reached economies of scale by Taylorism. This concept is the deskilling of workers and brake down the product into fragments. So, these workers complete one fragment of a whole product which makes mass production. We also learned about the times before currency was invented by federal government such as when Christopher Columbus landed in the Bahamas and took all the gold and silver he found back to Spain. This caused inflation and made it hard for the rulers in Spain to manage their high standard of living. We are currently learning about the New Deal and Golden Age which is the time period berween 1946-1970s.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is recommended to read the book appointed in the beginning of the class and review slide shows that are presented in class. The quizzes are based on what is taught in class. Also, it is important you pay close attention to what is said in class because Dr. Ebert mentions this that are not on the slide shows.
