Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Newman makes you sit down and go through problems in a very logical manner. He is able to teach you so much about the economy any where it is going and how everything is interlinked. Furthermore he will teach you models that you will be able to use in your future career i f you choose to take any path in the business world.
The highlight of the course was the very first day when he started explaining about the Canadian/US exchange rate, the price of oil and the US federal overnight rate, and how they are all interlinked. He was able to explain everything so simplistically and so logically that it all just started to make sense

Advice for students:
I would tell students who are interested in taking this course to keep up with the material and do not skip class. Newman progresses through his classes in a very logical manner, almost like he is telling a story, if you miss one class you could end up missing something that might come up in the midterm or the final exam. In addition he does not upload notes for the course so you have to attend if you want to know what is being covered.
