About the Course

Finance for Everyone: Decisions will introduce you to the workings of the free markets and the foundations of finance. You will learn how free markets and their “creative destruction” provide the architecture for the global economy and how those same markets move money in ways that create and destroy wealth. Your financial toolkit will include timeless concepts like compounding, discounting, annuities, effective interest rates, and more. You will also learn how to simplify important financial calculations and apply that knowledge to real-life decisions that can influence everything from how you pay for your car to where you live. Through peer review you will publish your view on an issue important to you. You will also discover how your applied decisions connect to bigger questions relating to changing market conditions as you prepare for the second course in F4E: Markets....

The course specifically deals with the motives behind a number of financial decisions which ranging from individuals to company firms make precisely prior to a big investments. Not only this, we tend to make a number of decisions just on the basis of day in and day out advertisements, however, we in the excitement forget the constant loops of hefty interests and regret, why we didn't think it through before taking loans or making a investment running for a long duration. This course deals with the foundational concepts of Time Value Money, ROI, Loans ( personal/ company).

The knowledge is imparted in a brilliant way. Only one thing is frustrating. Improvement should be done in marking of peer graded assignment. It takes way too much time and in the meanwhile, the course shows as being incomplete. It is really frustrating to wait for the marks.
