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.

Great re-introduction to finance. Not heavy on math, but great overview or principles. Not a course to "get rich quick" but learn how financial markets play into society.
