Finance, Banking, and Money Course
The financial crisis of 2007-2008 has made the study of money and banking almost as exciting as sex, drugs, and rock ‘n’ roll because it has made clear to all observers just how important the financial system is to our well-being.
This free online course is designed to help you internalize the basics of money and banking. There is a little math, some graphs, and some sophisticated vocabulary, but nothing terribly difficult, if you put your brain to it. This course's most important goal is to get you to think for yourselves. To fulfill that goal, each section begins with one or more questions, called Learning Objectives, and ends with Key Takeaways that provide short answers to the questions and smartly summarize the section in a few bullet points. Where appropriate, the book also drills you on specific skills, like calculating bond prices. Key terms and chapter-level objectives also help you to navigate and master the subject matter.
This course is very useful to business and finance professionals, as well as anyone who would like to aquire more knowledge about the global financial system and how the banking works.
