Robert Shiller is a well known expert and it was an honor taking his class. Especially liked learning the meaning of some fairly common terms, that I did not fully understand.

A great course by a Nobel Prize laureate. I especially love the wrap-up of the course. Think about your position in the historical transformation, instead of your life cycle.
