With record-breaking highs one minute and economy-rocking lows the next-not to mention arcane rules and ambiguous terminology-it can seem as if there's no way to feel truly comfortable in the financial markets. But there is, and it's more accessible than you might think. Financial Literacy: Finding Your Way in the Financial Markets is an essential primer on this domain, from its functions, strengths, and possibilities to its weaknesses and vulnerabilities. In 24 eye-opening lectures, award-winning Professor Connel Fullenkamp of Duke University reveals the interconnected workings of the financial markets and how society's financial strength-and your own-depend on money continuing to move through these channels. You'll come to understand just how interdependent the world's markets have become; feel newly at ease in the realm of stocks, bonds, derivatives, and credit; and be better able to make informed decisions for your financial future.
