Summary:
Sooo…I have a bit of a confession to make- I’ve established a bit of a cottage industry tutoring students in the course I taught while I was in grad school. Not gonna lie, it’s pretty nice to be seen as an advocate as opposed to the thing between the student and the grade that the student wants, in part because students are more willing to admit what they find confusing to me than to their “real” instructors. As a related project, I figured it would make sense to create videos for the items that students find to be particularly confusing or challenging. The first one is about gains from trade, since we specifically teach that the “price” of a trade has to be right in order to make all parties better off from trade, but we kind of gloss over the fact that a trade also has to be of a size

Hopefully that was helpful! You can see more information on all of the videos here. If you’re an instructor, you might find the Econ 101 Database, listed on my site under “Other Projects”, to be useful as well.
