Financial Theory - Audio

This course attempts to explain the role and the importance of the financial system in the global economy. Rather than separating off the financial world from the rest of the economy, financial equilibrium is studied as an extension of economic equilibrium. The course also gives a picture of the kind of thinking and analysis done by hedge funds.

It's supposed to sound like Psych

For too long economics and finance theory has been captive to the views of rational buying decisions and the efficient market hypotheses.

But we all know that economics is not all about rational decision making. And financial decisions are not merely rational decisions where everybody has the same information and makes the "best" (I.e., most rational) decision.

Economics and finance are driven by psychological factors including fear, greed, advertising manipulation, and marketing ploys. Finance is about psychology. That's what Behavioral Finance & Behavioral Economics are all about.

An interesting concept

It really does make a lot of sense. But it feels more like listening to a psychology lecture.
