Who is this class for: This course was designed originally for upper level undergraduate economics majors at Barnard and Columbia, in New York City. (The lectures were filmed live in the class I teach there.) But I have found that the course works for a much broader group as well: people who work in banks or finance but have no background in economics or finance (IT folk, lawyers), graduate students in economics and also other social sciences (history, international political economy, anthropology), and adult learners who sense the importance of the subject and want to find out how to think more deeply about it. Because I teach in New York, which is the center of world dollar money markets, the course is focused on those markets, but I have found that it works well even for learners from around the globe, in Europe and Japan, but also in China and India, and everywhere else. The basic concepts and tools that we need to understand dollar money markets work just as well for understanding others, and dollar money markets are at the center of the larger global financial system.

Mind Blowing approach to teach. Got the new angles of the economy and banking. Expanded the vision significantly on the subject.

Economics and Finance have always been explaining theories and concepts to students. Often when thought back/pondered upon, the theories are unable to explain all the queries of real life.

This course stitches through all the theories and present a very well thought out and a complete picture of the financial world. A very unique perspective and a rare perspective at that.

Highly recommended that you register and pay for this course. As it makes the learning so much more interesting, intriguing and gives us so much understanding of the money view of the financial world.

Wonderful

Very good.
