2) PEER REVIEW #1 (JANELLE)
I have learned a lot in this course. Mostly I think I learned just how much everything is connected in the economy and how what you might think is a small annoying change like a rise in inflation can actually cause huge changes in the overall economy. Also, I learned about how my demand for a product as a consumer actually has a big impact on the market itself.
In my professional life, I think I will pay more attention to the market that I am in. I am in a managerial position at my job and I am responsible for anticipating the needs of the business. I think that this course has shown me how to better look at the overall market I am in and how to analyze things to make the best decisions for my company.
To someone that is just starting to learn the principles of economics, I would say to make sure to ask questions if you do not understand something. Also, something as small as googling a concept that you are unsure of can provide for a much better understanding. There is no way to memorize everything that you read but watching the videos and learning the practical applications of things will really help you out in understanding the overall concepts that you need to learn.
3) PEER REVIEW #2 (JADA)
Professor, Professor, Professor,
I have learned so much in this class. I found myself watching some of the videos two and three times just to make sure I was hearing what I was hearing! It’s amazing how blind we Americans are as to what’s going on in our own back yard with regards to our economy. And the “how money really works” week has me questioning everything now. Loll I truly can’t believe that we as Americans have not been able to change the system in which money is handled. It’s crazy! I do know that I am even more determined to get out of all debt and not rely on credit anymore. I plan on sharing the information I’ve learned with my kids, which actually I already have, and with all my other family members, friends, and co-workers. I am more conscious and aware of how the economy works so I have set goals that will thrust me into changing my habits on how I spend and save. My advice to someone just starting to learn about economics it to start from the bottom even if you think you have an understanding of it all. I thought I knew a few things, but turned out I didn’t. I would encourage citizens of this country to get involved an engaged in our economy and the things that will make a difference for us all. Man, what a lesson! 🙂 Thanks for all your support and understanding this semester. Maybe our paths will cross again online. 🙂
