Just a quick question. Can you really teach economics without calculus? Reviewing it now just to refresh my memory since we have a budget being delivered tomorrow here in Aus. I have reached the point where it is proven that maximizing overall profit is different from profit per unit of whatever you are considering - you can maximize one or the other - but not necessarily both - obviously you usually want to maximize overall profit. It is easy with calculus but without it how the bejesus would you do it. And for those that studied without calculus I wonder how many even know its true?

BTW for those interested the course I am using for review is Economics With Calculus on Edx exactly as taught at Caltec,

Thanks

Bill
