Orcam Educational Resources Page

Just in case you’ve missed this….I’ve added a big resources page at the Orcam website.  It’s much better organized than anything here at Pragcap.  This blog is obviously just a running dialogue so a lot of good content gets lost over time if I don’t bookmark it.  Plus, this site is kind of a disorganized mess.  The list at Orcam is a collection of the more pertinent stuff from various websites and here at Pragcap from the years I’ve been working on the site.

One of my big goals with Orcam is to help create a smarter and more empowered public through a better understanding of money, finance, economics and the markets.  If you haven’t checked out the educational page over there you might want to head over or bookmark it.

And please, if you have any suggestions for improvements or things I can do to help please let me know.  Your feedback is the best way to improve things.  See below:

  1. A glossary of relevant terms, phrases, acronyms, etc. would be useful. I imagine it could grow over time as people ask “What’s _______ mean?”

  2. We’re talking about what is at Orcam, not PragCap. And the glossary here is very short and mostly has to do with MR. I’m talking about a much larger glossary at Orcam covering “money, finance, economics and the markets.”

  3. Hi Cullen! Great resource page; I’ve been waiting for something like this for awhile. However, I have a minor complaint. There is no basic economics section. You have said before that what is in most economics textbooks is wrong; so, what is right? I assume supply/demand, capital/labor/land, etc are still valid. I guess you link outside resources like Khan Academy, and there is always Wikipedia, but I would like to know what you think, or your favorite links. For example, I would like to know what MR refutes about economics and what it does not. Does MR only concern macro? If not, then how is it integrated into micro? Does MR refute general equilibrium theory or accept a modified framework? I am not an economist, I am a physicist, but the field needs a more scientific approach such as Steve Keen’s as El Viejo has linked above. Anyway, love your work, thank you.

  4. Bill Mitchell an Australian economist (Centre of Full Employment and Equity (CofFEE), at the Charles Darwin University, Northern Territory, Australia) who is writing (in conjunction with others) an economics text book based on MMT.

    He posts drafts of the chapters that he is writing at:

    (There are a couple of entries re a quiz that might not be relevant, just skip through the headings and it is obvious which ones are likely to be chapters of an economics text)

  5. Explorer,

    I’d appreciate it if you didn’t promote MMT here. I don’t endorse their views and while I think it can be educational to learn their views, I wouldn’t recommend it in introductory material like I’ve provided here. Thanks.

  6. Cullen,

    Some excellent resources but John Hussman??? He has managed to lose money for his Strategic Growth investors since the beginning of 2004. You must admit that sounding smart about the economy, whether right or wrong, certainly doesn’t make a great investor.

  7. EXCELLENT but you should include a short chapter about Bobby Farrel’s 10 rules. Too much wisdom in them.
