A very beautifully structured course. It will appear to be cumbersome but if one follows-up closely with the professor's lectures and the TAs then he or she shall surely sail through the quizzes at the end of each lesson.

Professor Schiller is the reason to take this course. He understands and explains Finance not just in the traditional sense, but also in an applied way that matters to society and the good that can come from Finance. It's not just about money, it's about us as a people.
