Y'all did professor Geerolf dirty with these poor reviews! I was hesitant to take the class with him based on previous reviews. However, his class was quite pleasant and very fair.

He redesigned his class to be much less math-based and less theoretical as well, especially in the 2nd half (post-midterm) material. I found myself learning a lot more about relevant economics (ie Trump's impact on deficits and how he proved the Phillips curve wrong), and learning how much of the theory we've been learning in high school or underclassman years are wrong. Instead of testing us on these wrong theories, he designs his tests based on what actually happens in reality according to the data! I learned more about real-world economics in 1 quarter than I did in my previous 2 years at UCLA, thanks to Geerolf. When people ask me to explain certain things about the economy, I'm now able to do so with confidence.

Homework is not too difficult and basically free points since its completion-based. The first midterm was tough, but open-notes and multiple choice made it easier. There was more theory/math on this midterm, which is why it was harder. The final was much less theory-based and I found that studying for it was much easier than I anticipated. For example, he basically axed the entire Monetary Policy unit because Fiscal Policy is much more effective in changing aggregate demand. DO THE READINGS. At least 25% of the final is based directly on the readings, which certainly helped me (since I spent more time on the readings than I did trying to understand the economic theory). Make sure to focus only on what he says in lecture (I would recommend rewatching ALL lectures before an exam), since he won't test you on anything in his notes if he does not explicitly cover it in class or in the readings. Again, he says this multiple times, proving how FAIR this class is. I got a C+ on the midterm but an A on the final and overall. Nice guy, fair class. Would take again.
