Through this course, I have learned not only technical financial terms but much deeper meaning of the financial markets which I always wanted to understand. I feel very lucky that I took this course.
This was really a great experience. A course taught by a valued teach. Enjoyed it all the way though I would have liked more mathematical and theoretical models. But then where do you end in a MOOC ?
Why should I take this course again? I already took Financial Markets from Professor Shiller before!
Professor Shiller has made some pretty amazing updates to his course; not only do you see updated lectures from 2016-2017, he also has additional videos which include student salons, chalk talks, interviews, and TA timeouts. Join us in the course, watch the introductory module, and learn more about these great additions to increase your knowledge of financial markets!
