Open Yale: Robert Shiller's Financial Markets Course - 2011

Tue, 22 May 2012 06:31:00 GMT

Yesterday, on MoneyScience, I came across Robert Shiller's 2007 Financial Markets Course at Yale and @StatAlgo on Twitter pointed me to the 2011 version which is available on Open Yale. Great viewing for students and academics alike -and as StagAlgo pointed out it's interesting to note how these lectures differ from those in 2008.

About the Course

An overview of the ideas, methods, and institutions that permit human society to manage risks and foster enterprise. Description of practices today and analysis of prospects for the future. Introduction to risk management and behavioral finance principles to understand the functioning of securities, insurance, and banking industries.
