Courses Relating to the New Financial Order

Compiled by Robert J. Shiller

This page offers links to a number of courses at universities that cover aspects of the future of finance and insurance and their relation to our broad social objectives. These courses are, of course, not open to the public, but I think that it is useful for all of us to look at the course descriptions as indications of some of the thinking that is propelling the ongoing financial innovation.

  • I teach a course at Yale University entitled Economics 527, Law 20083, Management 565, "Behavioral and Institional Economics".

  • I teach a course at Yale University entitled Economics 252: Financial Markets. A video of all the lectures in the course will be available on Open Yale starting some time in 2008.

  • I have also recently taught a course at Yale University entitled Economics 525: Advanced Macroeconomics I that studies macroeconomics from a risk management perspective, and considers the role of financial innovation in improving aggregate functioning of the economy.

  • John Y. Campbell teaches a course at Harvard University entitled Risksharing in Macroeconomics.

  • Robert Merton teaches a course at the Harvard Business School on Functional and Strategic Finance.

  • Al Roth and Estelle Cantillon teach a course at Harvard University entitled Market Design.
