Who is this class for: This course was designed originally for upper level undergraduate economics majors at Barnard and Columbia, in New York City. (The lectures were filmed live in the class I teach there.) But I have found that the course works for a much broader group as well: people who work in banks or finance but have no background in economics or finance (IT folk, lawyers), graduate students in economics and also other social sciences (history, international political economy, anthropology), and adult learners who sense the importance of the subject and want to find out how to think more deeply about it. Because I teach in New York, which is the center of world dollar money markets, the course is focused on those markets, but I have found that it works well even for learners from around the globe, in Europe and Japan, but also in China and India, and everywhere else. The basic concepts and tools that we need to understand dollar money markets work just as well for understanding others, and dollar money markets are at the center of the larger global financial system.
