Additional Course Details: 

The course seeks to place money and finance in its historical context, showing its significant and often pivotal role in human progress and is a backstory for much of the human saga. From this vantage point, we will examine innovation and crisis in banks and banking, the bond markets, the equity markets, insurance, real estate, and cross-border trade & monetary flows. Our investigation will reach into numerous present day and historical financial events and circumstances, including the collapse of countries, scandals at companies like Enron and Lehman Brothers, and the impact of individuals going “off the rails” like Bernie Madoff or Martin Shkreli. These are scandals, upheavals, and crises.

Additional Course Details: 

The course seeks to explore what finance says about the increased focus on corporate social responsibility (CSR) and how investment analysis addresses a growing emphasis on environmental, social & corporate governance (ESG) objectives. We study how mandates towards people and planet are integrated into financial models and the management of firms, including what this means about corporate financial objectives, particularly firm responsibilities to a wide variety of “stakeholders”. And we investigate how investors determine and then act on ESG goals. These fields are topical but underexamined and poorly understood. Prereq: FIN 701, Fin Policy and FIN 702, Investment Analysis; or instructor permission.
