    We use this lecture when our 5 year old won’t eat his dinner. It’s proven very effective and he’s finally gaining some weight.
    It’s also a pretty good macroeconomics lecture.

    I plan on studying economics independently in the future and these lectures are in my top spot to use as a resource but I wonder if:
    Are the (main) ideas here outdated?
    Anyone with an economics knowledge care to comment on this question.

    This lecture was in 1998, when the Internet was a novelty. He keep emphasizing that the Internet is a great tool and the future of communication. However, it is interesting how current the information sounds and that policies with deadlines and other things never change in seventeen years. Thank you for the upload.
