Excellent broad view of a crisis of confidence in safe assets.

My selves being in the middle of the financial crisis and working for a sovereign financial institution without having a major stake on the line is like being at war without a license to kill or die for.

I think both T. Geithner and A Metrick gave us a very realistic and honest picture of the current affairs of the Global Economic Crisis from 2007 and on wards.

Considering Geithners special position as Secretary of the Treasury at the time it is therefore very firsthand and insightful information however there is always the risk of contamination from what was done as opposed to what could have been done.

Great Course - a must for economists!

I would highly recommend this course for anyone who wishes to understand the events that happened during the GFC. Both, Prof Andrew Materick and Secretary Geitner provide excellent "insights & data"; and have made the course very interesting.

Looking forward for other coursers on Finance from Yale University.

P.S: The assignments are not easy as they seem to be. One has to carefully listen to the lessons and make proper notes.
