MOST EXCITING IDEA UNITING 100 UNIVERSITIES STUDENT UNIONS TO SUSTAIN HUMANS MACHINES & MOTHER NATURE Fortunately the worlds great educator sir fazle abed was already making 100 open universities of sustainable his 5th and final decade long mega-project in an extraordinary attempt to marry the women economics maps of ending povert with expanding middle clases with leapfrog tech partnerships that most empower worldwide youth to advance humanity.In 1984 co-authors of The 2025 Report included The Economist's Deputy Editor Norman Macrae. Our purpose to explore the Keynesian logic of why millennials with a trillion times moore tech than the moonshot generation - and urgently needing to be the first sustainability generation - would need a transformation in which education not economics is valued by all as the communal system which advances humanity.In the intervening 37 years, our friends have seen this view become exponentially more urgent - with covid just the most recent signal that humans have not yet applied remarkable technology leaps by von neumann and others in a way that values all lives matter. We do not see the UN's 2020s sdgs decade as just another media game but humanity's last call. Who's purposes with education give us hope in the 2020s of living up to neumanns (to 1957) and kennedy's (to 1963) valuation of youth.

EconLib: Special Edition
YOUR Source for Economics Online



"No one is so brave that he is not disturbed by something unexpected."
~Julius Caesar


It seems we've entered a whole new age in just the last couple of weeks. Many teachers- and, necessarily, students- have been thrust into online education. This impacts just about everyone we know.

For over two decades, Econlib has been committed to bringing you the best economics on the web, and our commitment remains as strong as ever. It is our sincere hope that this special e-newsletter can provide some resources to help bridge the gap between live and online learning.

Over the last week, we've shared some tips and thoughts on teaching online:

Below we highlight some of the resources we hope are most useful. Now more than ever, if there are additional resources we might supply you with, please let us know. We are always available at econlib@libertyfund.org.

EconTalk Extras

EconTalk Extras are our follow-ups to our weekly podcasts, designed with conversation in mind. Comments on each Extra are open for 30 days (as with EconLog and EconTalk). We'd encourage your students to share their thoughts. (Don't worry; it's moderated!) The questions are also ideal for sparking offline conversations, and can make excellent writing assignments as well.
