Al, one of the students in David Gordon’s Economic Reasoning course (which is still open for enrollment) had this to say about the first lecture:
This is my second course from Dr. Gordon. This first lecture was like all his others, full of wit, humor, depth of knowledge, coupled with an easy going understandable delivery. How could one not enjoy his instruction, regardless of the subject.
And Justin, another student, had this to say:
In terms of intelligence and perception Dr. David Gordon is unparalleled in the present day; arguably in the whole of modern philosophy and not simply in the relatively narrow field of libertarianism. This was on perfect display in the opening lecture of Gordon’s recent course for the Mises Academy, Economic Reasoning. Over the period of an hour Dr. Gordon communicates dozens of complex concepts, refutations and causal relations, but these ideas are not simply stated in a dry disjointed manner, they are related to a history of various schools economics and philosophy, and are illustrated in a way were each idea logically follows from one to the next. However, this in itself is not what is impressive about Dr. Gordon’s lecture, but the clarity in which he communicates these various ideas. Even if one was not familiar with the various schools of economics and philosophy that are being dealt with, they will still be able to follow Dr. Gordon’s explanations with very little effort on their own part. All that is required is the desire for knowledge.
And finally Martin said:
David Gordon’s course is Economics that “even a caveman can understand”. If you’re sick from trying to follow the “economics” from the taking heads on MSM (floods,earthquakes and wars create wealth) this course is the cure.
The second lecture is this Thursday. It’s still early enough to sign up, catch up, and join in!
