Rather than separating off the financial world from the rest of the economy, financial equilibrium is studied as an extension of economic equilibrium. The course also gives a picture of the kind of thinking and analysis done by hedge funds.

Fantastic course

Taught by the James Tobin professor of economics at Yale, a man who is not only a distinguished professor but also owns a very large hedge fund. He is also quite funny. So you get a great blend of theory and practicality from a fun guy. Well worth the time!

You will need a basic understanding of probabilities to understand the second half of the course. You will also need Excel with the Solver add-in.

I have not been able to locate the course notes or problem sets that are frequently referenced. I've checked the oyc.yale site as well as Google, without success.
