I LOVE THIS PROFESSOR! he is wonderful. he is so knowledgable and he makes econ so much easier to understand. He uses articles to relate to what he's teaching which really helped me learn the concepts. I will say that it is a lot more math than you would expect for a course titled history of capitalism, but he does the math in class to help you understand the point of what he's teaching, and the best part is that he doesn't make you do nonsense algebra, you just take derivatives to understand what you're learning. He is one of the only econ professors at UCLA that understands how much students struggle in this major and he really focuses on concepts and not just daunting, annoying math or algebra. One midterm 25%, homework assignments in lab is 25% and the lab isn't time consuming at all, one final that's 50%, and if you do better on the final he'll usually put more weight on that.

This class is easily the best class offered in the econ department. The subject material is basically going through the history of capitalism, and going over topics like Marxism, Hayek and Keynes, Great Recession, etc. There are two data reports, two essays, and a final group project. The professor is really clear in his lectures and you definitely learn a lot. The grading on the papers is kind of harsh, but if you go to OH and ask questions about what to write about the prof will lead you in the right direction. Grading on the data report is not as harsh, you just have to make sure to cover everything mentioned in the instructions. If you have a chance to take this class, definitely do it.
