For those contemplating whether or not to take the course, Dr. Wolfram provides a convincing argument for how the course is a valuable use of time. Wolfram explains, “If you don’t understand how markets work, then you are likely to ask for public policy which is going to be counterproductive to what you are trying to achieve.”
He further argues that the course is valuable even to those who already somewhat understand the free market because they will be able to better communicate to others the reasons behind their beliefs, and they will be equipped to “win the battle of ideas.”
