Learning objectives
The goal of this course is to give an overview of evolution of financial markets from the Middle Ages to XXIst century, and to discuss the several financial crises that are as old as financial markets themselves. The primary aim is not to focus on facts, events, theories or numbers but rather to see the big picture in an integrative framework in a very long-run perspective. The students attending the course will be able to understand the causes of past crises and to remodel a conceptual framework that ties common elements together and underscores critical differences. We will discuss the lessons that we can draw for financial markets today.
