"Markets" in Everything: Free Classes at Yale

Open Yale Courses provides free and open access to a selection of introductory courses taught by distinguished teachers and scholars at Yale University. The aim of the project is to expand access to educational materials for all who wish to learn.

Here's an example of a class: Financial Markets with Professor Robert Shiller.

harvard also offers same. I found "justice" with Michael Sandel to be a good introductory overview of the major philosophers and the questions they raise. Knowing a bit more about, for instance, utilitarianism, I found that section to be a little lacking (he only focused on short-term, not long-term as it has been developed after Bentham), but his treatment of libertarianism was at least pretty fair.

hey; he was a lecturer at a major school, and didn't come across as a blatant statist, so that was pretty great.
