There is a separate course where he has made videos regarding the important topics on which he would be making the course on. Plus, Economy is inter-related, so in my opinion, you can start off with any topic and then choose the next. You would still be able to understand everything because Ayussh sir tries to cover all the aspects. I don't come from an Economy background and therefore I find his courses to be very helpful. Make sure you cover everything
sir, then what is the difference between capital goods and intermediate goods? is capital good included in the GDP?
i have a doubt. Are factors of production like capital labour land included when determining the gdp? or only the final goods
obviously the final good is going to carry the costs of factors of production.So why need to determine seperately?
