Financial Markets   

ECON 252 - Financial Markets

author: Robert J. Shiller, Department of Economics, Yale University
recorded by: Yale University
released under terms of: Creative Commons Attribution No Derivatives (CC-BY-ND)

Financial institutions are a pillar of civilized society, supporting people in their productive ventures and managing the economic risks they take on. The workings of these institutions are important to comprehend if we are to predict their actions today and their evolution in the coming information age. The course strives to offer understanding of the theory of finance and its relation to the history, strengths and imperfections of such institutions as banking, insurance, securities, futures, and other derivatives markets, and the future of these institutions over the next century.
