Economics for a Better World


Improve your economics, statistics, and academic skills; from absolute beginner to more advanced topics.

Economics for a Better World (EBW) is here to help you improve your understanding of the world, offering courses in a plethora of topics related to studying economics.

EBW believes that the value in studying economics doesn’t come from its advanced and highly mathematical theories, but how it can improve the way you see the world, your reasoning, and decision making. In this spirit, EBW is dedicated to providing courses that are both ‘pluralist’ (learning from a range of perspectives) yet also accessible to non-economists.

Economics can help shed light on topics we all care about: individual behaviour, the role of government, inequality, the environment, and poverty to name a few. It is with this in mind that EBW was born.

Whether you want to learn something new from scratch, want to refresh your memory of something you’ve learned in the past, or simply expand your horizons; you’ve come to the right place.

EBW courses can be watched 24/7 wherever you are, and most are fully downloadable. You can also view them on mobile devices.

All EBW courses have a 30-day money-back guarantee so that you can make sure it’s the right course for you, and get a refund if it’s not!
