An intellectually engaging course opening a debate about how we think about markets and how we should tackle the current challenges. Accessible to non-economists. I warmly recommend it to everyone.
This course is really useful to me ... I was always interested on monetary and fiscal policies and associate mechanism in Macroeconomics and this course covers the Monetary part in good details.

Having not been present in money, finance or the world of economics for some time the first couple weeks of this course were rather intimidating. As the weeks progressed and the progression of the course became more clear, I found the course very interesting and insightful. I took this course as a personal interest course and not as a "credit" course and learned a great deal not only about the differing views regarding money, but also about the events surrounding money and the powers of banks.

This is an excellent course, delivered by a professor avid of economic tradition and old books, who shows a deep and personal understanding of historical views on money economics. This course is based more upon readings than on personal, direct experience of moeny and banking. The course, from 2015 or about, is already in needs of an update, though. Overal, this is an excellent course.

Overall I really liked the course. Many real world examples are provided, the course covers all topics mentioned during the examples and it gives you insight in many world's banking mechanism. Negative aspects: too long, some chapter can be cut off, you need a minimum background in economics to fully enjoy the course.
The content of this course is very relevant to the real-world financial system, and provide an alternative way to understand how the financial system works and how they relate to each other. This is the biggest difference from those standard books of the money and bank. Overall, it is a very good course.

The course content is very interesting and provides a broad view of the history of the development of the theory of money and banking.
However, tests are not always correct. The choice of answer is often ambiguous. We need slides that briefly present the essence of the problems under consideration.

I learned so much about an important topic and Prof. Mehrling keeps you interrested in the course throughout all lectures. I enjoyed the connection to the real world through the real world examples. Just 4 stars, because I missed some balance sheet quizes or more mathematical questions

Well crafted syllabus and text that builds on material and continual ties ideas together.
Stay Liquid and Survive!
Dated materials, article links that do not work, some of the video editing. Quizes are not really benficiall to learning

Very good course, teacher is great and content is very insightful.
On the less good side, students should not expect all concepts to be clarified from the beginning, so a good deal of research has to be self made.
I can get the useful knowledge on origin of Fed and other basic source about American finace.
So I want to deeply recommend this course to all of you. Thanks

In some moments it may be a bit tough, but I've found it not only interesting but also worth the time spent on it. I would take it again.

It was awesome to know and learn economics from a different point of view from a view which I'm learning in Japan
