Good lectures from a great economist

I think it is great to actually hear the views of one of our best health economists. I've enjoyed every second and I recommend my students to follow this course to prepare for mine.

Very informative

I thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Gruber's lectures. I am a student in college and majoring in Economics and Finance. I use this course as a study companion to prepare for a test or just clear up a lecture that I did not quite grasp fully from my Professor in class. I highly recommend this for any student taking Micro.
