I see people often comment on e.g. QE, whether we’re doomed due to central banking intervention etc.
I’ve been following the following coursera: https://www.coursera.org/learn/money-banking
And it’s pretty interesting so far (I’m finishing week 3), it’s probably a ton more academic than the youtube videos people seem to like around here (but then at least it feels like the content is very solid, and not black&white it actually explains that many of the concepts have many different ways of seeing it).
It’s actually very current since it was filmed right in the middle of the QE crisis so they do talk a lot about those things as well (but it’s still very US banking focused so far, I’m left wondering how different the European side was).
For all those that are fans of beancount, you’ll probably like it as most of the lessons so far are based on double entry accounting.
I suppose there’s some baseline economic knowledge required, but doesn’t feel very high (I’m not particularly lost and I mostly know stuff from wikipedia and a few books + standard high school classes).
Anyone else has other courseras to recommend?
