Understanding Financial Bubbles and Crises


This course, offered on the Duke in London Finance summer program, examines the similarities/differences of historical financial crises, from 'Tulipmania' through the Great Recession of 2008, to better understand our current economic environment. The class explores the regulatory changes that are enacted post-crisis and determines factors that might prevent future economic bubbles/crises. Class includes guest speakers from the London financial community to provide an inside view and feel of the markets during those periods as well as current topics in the financial arena. Prerequisite: Economics 101.
