Financial Markets, an excellent, excellent introduction
Trust me, you will want to spend a few hours a week taking this online course that is currently available at the unbeatable price of ... an internet connection. Financial Markets begins NOW, this week, and runs for eight weeks. It may get addictive, like my previous Coursera courses.
Coursera + Yale university. Financial Markets.

It has a mathematical basis.
It has a intellectual underpinning that
it a infrastructure for our, our whole
And I want this course to help people
understand this technology so that they are
not buffeted by it, so they can react to
the technology and its
opportunities constructively in whatever
walk of life they choose."
There will be a guest every week, and in week one it's Hank Greenberg (of pre-bailout AIG).
