Great course for people to understand the nature of the financial market and how understanding the concepts will benefit yourselves to understand how finance play a big role in every aspect of life.
This course is easy to follow and interesting. Professor Shiller is very motivating. It not teaching about finance but more importantly how finance can build a better life for all. Really recommended.
This was really a great experience. A course taught by a valued teach. Enjoyed it all the way though I would have liked more mathematical and theoretical models. But then where do you end in a MOOC ?
I really enjoyed the course and the way how they explained everything through videos and well defined example. Through this course I really got to know the market and how market works.
Why should I take this course again? I already took Financial Markets from Professor Shiller before!
