Understanding Financial Markets

Robert Shiller, who predicted the stock market crash earlier this decade and the bursting of the housing bubble in 2008, has a unique understanding of the financial markets and behavioral economics. In this free course provided by Yale University, Shiller demystifies the financial markets and explains “the theory of finance and its relation to the history, the 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.” It’s a course for our shaky financial times. The first lecture appears above, and the full course can be accessed on YouTubeiTunes and Yale’s web site. The course is also listed in our meta collection of Free Courses and our targeted selection of Free Economics Courses.

    I was interested in the topic, but couldn’t sit through the umming and aahing of the professors. Some people are brilliant but can’t speak. They shouldn’t be public speakers.

    Its very informative, I think you may be doing yourself a disservice letting his inarticulacy (which isn’t so bad) deter you from receiving the knowledge he has to offer

    please remove this comment, it was only after I read this that I got distracted by what he is talking about,I would have probably ignored it.
