Economics Optional 2019: discussion, information sharing and study targets

I searched for a proper thread for Economics optional but guess isn't here that's why I decided to create it. I have no idea how can it benefit anyone or me. Let's hope it turn out to be useful. If you are from economics background, have economics Optional or even commerce, you are welcome to participate.

    Why not tell me the plan
  • I don't have a plan as such. We can try and make one. I would like to start with Micro followed by Macro.
  • Good. What should we try first. Should we follow the syllabi chronology or specific chapter
  • I think following syllabus is better idea.
    The first one comes : Marshallian and walrasian approach to price determination
  • Which book do you follow?
  • Okay, it will be better to go as per syllabus. Let us do Marshallian and walrasian approach to price determination tomorrow. We could also write an answer and share for correction.

    What questions should we follow?
  • Who is a best teacher for economics Gs ?
  • Honestly no one...Sanjiv Verma sir's book and Sriram's printed book should be more than enough+ current affairs...Ivan also read tmh book by Ramesh Singh but then there will be lot of repeatation and waste of efforts...Sriram +Sanjeev is more than enough

    Today we have to recollect and revise this topic then inform here ...this should be done before 11:59 AM.

    You can also search for YouTube videos if you are not able to understand it fully because economics can be tricky sometimes even for gs (stay away from paid videos and noobs videos, you will never know when did you inculcated wrong understanding of an economic concept plus paid videos will drain your pocket unnecessarily).

    Okay. We can go through Marshall & Walras and also make a tentative plan for preparation by 12 noon.

    Barring some chapters which aren't syllabus relevant, would cover it thoroughly. I'm following abhimanyu sir's blog for chapters which aren't so important.

    As you have time its better to cover the whole book no doubt abhimanyu sir's blog is helpful but go through the past two year questions they were asking from the chapters which neither sir nor the part of syllabus
    i can and i will
