More about this course

From the best selling instructor comes a brand new course: History of Corporate Finance In a Nutshell: The Foundations of Modern Finance.

This course is a non-fiction narrative, taking you on a journey to where finance came from. It describes how financial theories were developed, how ideological and government experiments shaped economies, and the rise and fall of financial markets. It discusses influential thinkers who shaped society, crazy scams that worked (for a while), and demystifies financial concepts into simple ideas everyone can understand.

You'll learn what drives and creates markets, mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyouts and hostile takeovers, and the 2008 U.S. financial housing collapse. We'll walk through the rise and fall of financial markets, financial theory and the crazy true story of modern economics.

This course will teach you to understand:

  • Financial and Capital Markets. What’s the purpose?
  • The importance of Intellectual Property Protection
  • Market Efficiency and Market Crashes

  • The Role of Government In Finance. How government can help or hinder markets
  • The Basics of Option Strategies

And much much more…
