"Are you blind!?" -Nimarko
Probably my favorite teacher of all time. He sparked my interest in economics when I otherwise never would've even considered the field. Now I'm majoring in econ in uni. Fantastic teacher, makes the material very interesting. If you're willing to attend lectures and do all the assigned work it's an easy 90%+ mark.

Do not worry if you're not doing so well in his class. I was in the 70s-80s range but he boosts everyone by A LOT and ended up with a 94% in his class. His accent is also hilarious which makes the class that much more entertaining. He also reads a huge newspaper when we take exams and doesn't pay attention to the class making it easy to cheat, not that you need to. Do the assignments and try to at least pass the exams and it's an easy 80.

In my opinion, he is quite clear. It takes a few courses to understand what he is saying, but once you'll get used to it, you'll be fine. Just write down what he writes on the board, including the graphs and such, study them before the test and you'll pass for sure. The exams are straight-forward and he asks things that he talked about in class. I took him for macro and I got a pretty good mark. He makes you print his notes (almost useless), just write down his in-class notes and you'll be fine.

He's not that bad, if you're taking him for Microeconomics you should stick with him since there are only 2 teachers and the other one is worse. If you attend all of his classes, do your assignments and try your best he will pass you even if you're likely to fail. He doesn't like failing people, but if you don't try your best he won't care if you fail.

He is a very boring teacher and sometimes he makes the class longer (doesn't let you out 15 minutes before the the end like every other teacher) when he knows that it is the last class that you have that day. But if you somewhat show effort in his class (if you show up), he will pass you no matter how bad you did in his class. I failed every test and some of the assignments and still passed.
you decide if it's worth it. (honestly it wasn't)

If you're in the commerce program you probably only have 2 choices of teacher and he's one of them. He's such a nice man but he's not good at explaining. However, as long as you come to class and try hard he will make you pass even though you're failing. I got 60's in all my test but he gave me 76% as final grade, the class average was initially in the failing range but he also boost it up to 69%. So try your best to stay on his good side and show him youre putting effort and you should pass!

I consider myself a patient person and fair judge of character, but this guy... NEVER AGAIN. I have never worked so hard to get nowhere. This teacher is frustrating and is very hard to understand both in his lectures and in what he wants for assignments. Only positive side is that he boost marks at the end. But honestly, he is not worth your time. All macro teachers suck, but he's REALLY bad.

Gyasi is a good teacher, He is very knowledgeable about the subject. I had him for Micro and Macro and passed both courses with a 90. Just do EXACTLLY everything he asks for and do not miss a class. For the exams study exactly what is on the notes and it is an easy pass. Even if you fail all test he sees your effort mainly and grades on that.
