Money and Banking

Oct 2017

Is there something with Barnard Econ elective professors where they assign homework and give exams that are totally unrelated to what's going on in class? We learn a lot stuff you'd find in a basic finance book, and it's nice he gives bits of info here and there about the topics in reality. However, the problem sets are entirely mathematical. They aren't that hard but you're definitely seeing a huge chunk of it for the first time. Never mentioned in lecture and absent from any of the slides he posts. The textbook certainly helps but this is a class where lectures are irrelevant towards the problem sets and exams. You're gonna have to teach yourself everything with the book.
