Why are some countries rich and others poor? This is a fundamental question of economics that has life and death implications for those involved. Taught by prominent economists Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok of Marginal Revolution and George Mason University, this course will cover the theory and empirics and history for the economic growth of developing nations. The course is divided up into "bite-size" chunks (average 5 minutes) that you can listen to at your leisure. Ask questions, chat with the professors and earn a certificate at http://mruniversity.com.

The timeless Indian greeting "Namaste" conveys the prayerful respect of the divinity within each and every one of us. The intention of these podcasts is to cultivate a caring, compassionate community - locally and globally - that will draw upon the ancient wisdom that reveals our connectedness as being "all one people." We will examine various systems of spirituality and psychology that together provide the foundation and practical ways we may integrate the Namaste Principle into our lives. We will include in these discussions a focus upon Vedanta, Raja Yoga, Buddhism, Christianity (especially as Jesus presents his intentions in "A Course in Miracles") as well as the works of Marshall Rosenberg (Nonviolent Communication), Byron Katie (Loving What is / The Work), Stephen Covey (The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People), Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Bruce Lipton (Spontaneous Evolution) and others.
