Money: A Gentle Introduction to Economics in Exciting Times
This seminar is an introduction to the nature, role, history, impact, art, and future of money. We will discuss elements of finance, monetary theory, monetary policy, monetary mischief (bubbles, manias), and the art of money (engraving, minting). We will explore how to make and use money wisely through both personal finance and career ideas. Finally, we will look at some current research on monetary policy. This seminar is oriented toward non-economics and non-business majors, though all are welcome.
