It is an interesting and specific topic that it is currently being discussed globally in Political Economy, and that is what the course is all about . Very interesting points of view and material is displayed during the course. I have previously enjoyed Professors Chris' other courses, so if you are into economics and like detailed paused and reiterative explanations, which is the best way to learn for me (and probably for most of us as far as I know), you will certainly learn a lot and enjoy in the process too. This course, surprisingly, is not as long as some of other courses that the instructor has on Udemy, the first half deals with the topic and most of the second part of the course deals with important Covid19 advice and teaching/learning insights which I am interested in so it was great for me, but some people may don't want to go over with those lectures, up to them. Overall a nice treat for me As for all other couses made by this instructor, you can expect prompt replies, and discussion forums to fluorish, what is raised goes to charity (animal shelter) so you will learn and contribute to a good cause; highly recommended!!
