Dogonomics - Udemy Course (Free until Sep. 11th) 咦!狗狗也可以幫我們上經濟學

in money •  last month

This dog-oriented course covers many economics topics: Brexit, demand, supply, elasticity, types of competition, small firms, micro-economic policy, macro-economic policy, interest rates, health economics, and Buddhist economics. Here and there, the teacher adds humorous or whimsical touches, all without becoming gimmicky.

Apart from the easily-guessed personal, societal and econonomic benefits of having a dog, Mr. Sivewright also includes non-obvious lessons (I don’t like to call them lectures) on dog ethics (one full hour out of the 6-hour total), dog IQs and “Saving homeless dogs using applied economics.” At the very beginning of the course, there is even a curious Chinese astrology-based lesson that relates President Trump’s behavior to the fact that he was born in the Year of the Dog: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dog_(zodiac)

Other unexpected topics include statins, harmony and inkblots. More “normal” topics include mergers, oligopolies, elasticity and health economics. Speaking of health, Mr. Sivewright also has some free and paying courses where he provides suggestions (extracted from research that he quotes from medical journals) on how to protect oneself from stroke and how to stay healthy when growing old, all of which are well worth checking out.

I am already enjoying this course taught by Chris Bankes Sivewright, but you should note that after September 11th, it will probably become a paying course: all of the the profits will be used to help dogs:

“Dogonomics is the use of the economy for the betterment of dogs. Just by enrolling on this course you will be helping dogs as ALL FEES from the Instructor and Videographer are waived and given to Dogs4Rescue, a UK charity for dogs.”


Dogonomics - Udemy課程(9月11日)

乍看之下,課程名稱會讓人以為老師在搞噱頭,但 Dogonomics 狗類經濟學 (dog + economics;這種字眼兒叫做『混成詞』blend [或 portmanteau , 法文 = 衣架])但Dogonomics很值得報名(免費試聽將近一個小時,而且有英文字幕).

課程深入淺出地涵蓋了許多經濟學主題:需求,供給,彈性,競爭類型,中小企業,微觀經濟政策,宏觀經濟政策,英國退歐,利率,衛生經濟學和佛教經濟學。

全部課程六個小時,其中整整一個小時跟道德有關,不是長時間接觸西方社會的華人可能很好奇:西方人為什麼那麼愛狗、那麼關心『狗權』?這門課也許會幫你回答這些問題。

今年9月11日之前教授的課維持免費,然而變成付費課程之後,一切學費將要捐給英國的慈善機構Dogs4Rescue。不管你是之前還是之後讀這帖,還是值得報名。
