My wife says that I am an evangelist, with economics as my religion. I’m not sure this is altogether a good thing! But maybe it explains my enthusiasm for prepping and giving these lectures.

"Professor Taylor made a seemingly difficult course very fun, and very easy to understand with great examples to make the points of the lectures."


"Professor Taylor's lecture style, clear explanations, subtle humor and support of free markets gave me a new knowledge base. This was my first formal economics course and I am grateful to Timothy Taylor for making it a great experience!"


"Professor Taylor is a very engaging lecturer. He really keeps your attention. He has a sense of humor and the course (and each lecture in it) is very well organized. I highly recommend him!"
