Financial Theory

John Geanakoplos
Yale University, 2009
Level: beginner
Topic: Macroeconomics, Microeconomics & Markets, Money & Debt
Format: Lecture

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.

Comment from our editors:

This Yale College course was recorded in Fall 2009. It's a great resource for everyone interested in financial economics theories, the ones that use mathematical logic along with economics thinking.
Dr. John Geanakoplos explains the reasons behind incorporating this course in Yale undergrad syllabus in addition to the main differences between financial theory and standard theory, through the introduction of multiple concepts that ease the depth understanding of the financial markets.
For the purpose of responding to the following question: Can we make economics more mathematical? The course has been divided into 26 sessions.
