Good course explaining the basic fundamentals of Financial Markets, especially Financial markets of US.

Professor Shiller is very good at teaching. This course is easy to follow

I thank Prof Robert Shiller, Yale University and Coursera for offering this course - Financial Markets. The course doesn't goes into the depth of any particular topic, but provides an excellent overview of entire financial ecosystem. It beautifully captures very well the broad spectrum of financial ecosystem (its context, history, fundamentals, actors and regulations) and educates the students in a manner that is easy to understand and informative. After taking this course, I am interesting in exploring more about financial markets, in particular the investment banking and futures and options. I would rate this course very high and recommend it to those who are interested in understanding financial markets. Thank you again for this offering!

The course faculty Prof. Robert has a simplified way of making the concepts understood. The course contents are very professionally designed. Thanks.
