Learning Economics With Video

For future reference, this is also a page under the Learning tab.

I’ve recently finished two lengthy projects for Pearson Higher Educational Publishing. Textbook links are to . The textbooks are

  • Jeffrey Perloff and James Brander, “Managerial Economics and Strategy” (2e, ISBN 978-0134168401).
  • Jeffrey Perloff, Microeconomics: Theory and Applications with Calculus (4e, ISBN 978-0134167381)

Each project was about 60 “voiceovers.” These are detailed explanations of graphs in the textbook accompanied by video showing each step in the process. Naturally, I think they are terrific. Here’s a sample developing the Edgeworth box. I’m especially proud of the video fx I managed here:
