Comment from our editors:

A good source to get acquainted with the classical concept of political economy, as it is generally easy to follow lectures delivered by Professor Munger. Moreover, each lecture contains a 'Lecture Overview'; this is followed by a list of readings. The video production quality of these lectures is good as well.
