Hands down will give this course 5-star. If there was an extra star, wouldn't mind to give that extra. Robert Shiller, Fin Markets Veteran, has excellent knowledge regarding the course and its surrounding. Overall experience is great. Kudos to people, behind and before the course. HatsOff COURSERA!!
Very useful course with a broad scope of coverage. I specially liked topics like Finance and Society and the assignments. It would have been useful to get into more depth in the typical finance areas like Options, Futures, etc. but I guess that we couldn't have mustered time for that given the scope.

My initial learning goals were to simply improve my ability to manage my portfolio. While I wouldn't say I'm there yet, the course did provide me with broad knowledge of Finance and corresponding history of Finance. This foundation will be the basis for continuing education in this field of study.

I am so glad I took this course during the Covid Pandemic in 2020. A necessary knowledge to apply in today's world and so relevant to the events that are happening right now. It is even crazier how some content in this course has predicted the economic situation at the time this course was taken.

Economics and finance are offshhots of moral science. Financial or an economic health of a country in the long term is a reflection of the social equity or how good is the collective concience of the society at large. Financial instruments are powerful tools to achieve higher standards of living.

A complete understanding of the importance and the modern role of Finance with examples from across the globe particularly the United States. The course topics were brilliantly complimented by the "Salon Sessions" which involved a lesson related question and answer session with Professor Shiller.

Professor Shiller is really knowledgeable in finance and can also draw a connection between finance and humanity. I understand now that finance is more than just about maximizing profits through financial markets, but also increasing our human capital, while also serving others at the same time.

Excellent course. Professor Shiller is a superb teacher. However, this course is not strictly for beginners. It is implicit that the prospective student has a knowledge of finance and investments. In other words, has completed at least one or two undergraduate courses in finance & investments.
