Comment from our editors:

The course offers an introduction to heterodox economics mainly focusing on marxist political economy that is also accessible to people with no prior knowledge of economics. The video lessons are easy to understand as they are divided into very short videos and summarised in key takeaways. In addition, the course recommends further readings and videos for people who want to delve deeper into the seven topics.
