  • Gilles Kwende Cameroon I find this course highly educative and relevant to the modern day world. The presentation is excellent, simplified enough to be understood by the lay person and yet of quality high enough to be relevant to the professional or someone seeking knowledge for application. As an old Physician from a developing country who grew up with only one dream in mind, that of seeing one's country pull out of under development, I have come to understand what economic 'development' really means to our future as humanity. I now understand all this hue and cry about climate change, developing alternative sources of energy etc and I believe development needs to tempered with caution. 2014-04-04 19:04:37
