Description

This course, jointly with the Introductory Econometrics course, provides the most comprehensive and serious overview of first-year Econometrics available, to date, on Udemy.
I don’t have to be here. But if I am going to be here, I am going to do it right and set the benchmark as to how Economics should be taught. Because I take students and their exams and their personal development seriously (on that note, feel absolutely free to reach out for any question or doubt that may arise as you delve into the material). Because, when I was taken seriously by my professors, everything became clearer and more engaging. Because the world is in dire need of engaged, curious people who act according to the brains instead of their stomach, people who let serious social science guide their gaze upon the surrounding world instead of random nonsense. A thoughtful world is a better world. I am strongly convinced that a serious study of proper economics helps moving toward that end.
In this course, I set out to complete the first-year sequence by introducing the main methods in Applied Econometrics. Its purpose, shared by the Introductory Econometrics course too, is to lay the foundations for deeper and more comprehensive studies in Econometrics. Hence, I spend little time dwelling on the mathematical derivation and statistical nuances, covering only the bare minimum, and more time trying to convey the intuition, the concept and, essentially, why should you care. Namely, after having introduced the Potential Outcomes Framework, I set out to illustrate Randomised Experiments (RCTs), Linear Regression, Instrumental Variables (IVs), Difference-in-Differences (DiD), Regression Discontinuity Design (RDD) and provide a brief overview of Panel Data, Matching and Synthetic Control. I cap it off by providing you with a list of Applications, real world examples of what kind of questions these models allow you to address, in the hope that they fire your curiosity up. Which is the only thing that matters.

Economist & LSE MSc Grad
The idea of EconAcademy is a pure accident of history, as it starts from EconAcademy’s Founder realisation that he was faced with increasing demand for supervision and help by his friends and colleagues and fixed or decreasing supply of time to dedicate to these activities. Recording videos that would address the most common questions and would issues seemed like the optimal way to be as helpful as possible to friends and colleagues in need of advice given the binding constraints. Hence, EconAcademy is the outgrowth of those “sharing-the-love” moments the Founder cherishes.The Founder of EconAcademy has completed 2 MScs at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) – the second best University in the World for Social Sciences after Harvard according to QS-, winning the Prize for Best Overall Performance in the Department and scoring the highest grade ever recorded in an exam in the Department and, before that, a BSc in Economic Sciences (Summa Cum Laude), with Best Dissertation and the “Holy Quaternity” of any BSc Economics (Microeconomics, Game Theory, Macroeconomics and Econometrics) with the highest grades possible in each of these courses. He has also worked as a Research Associate. His work has been and is being supervised by future winners of the Nobel Prize in Economics. Finally, and probably most importantly from your standpoint, the Founder of EconAcademy has informally supervised and helped with dissertations, projects, day-to-day courses and alike that have gone on to win Departmental Prizes or comparatively close results.
