This class has been interesting and fun. I like the use of WordPress as our class medium. I feel like I could effectively do all those things on the list prior to the class. However, I found it useful to revisit those subjects and improve upon them. As an econ and public policy major, all of the listed course objectives have at one time been part part of those studies. But it was refreshing to exercise all of them at once in a single class. For the most part, all of the course material was current and relevant, which was a nice change from the normal provided materials. Overall, it is important for all consumers to understand everything they can about the markets that they participate in. If more people had good understandings of this courses subjects we would live in a very different world.
