Pretty easy, overall.
The professor is really hands-on and the material is very interesting. The midterm and final exams were moderately difficult, but the four response papers helped with the final grade in the course. I recommend International Relations, Economics and Political Science majors take this course.
The highlight of the course for me was learning about the 2008 Recession and the different factors that contributed to the stock market crashing. I also liked learning about the South American economic crisis that occurred between 1999-2003. I ended up writing my thesis paper on this economic crisis.

Advice for students:
I would suggest making a study guide for each midterm exam and to make an outline of notes after each lecture. It really helps with learning the material and memorizing different terms for the exams. I would also suggest doing half of the response papers for recitation before Thanksgiving break and the other half after break.
