Great course to learn the basic and fundamental of finances, banking and economics. If some of the words or terms seem jargon to you, I would recommend to pause the video and check them out first before resuming.

The real life events are what made the course better. Everything was explained very well. So much so that I wish I could've had a proper course with Professor Shiller like the on-campus students. They are lucky!
