Finance lectures
November 10, 2010 6:06 AM   Subscribe

Free online videos/courses to explain financial markets in general, the American stock market in particular? I've found and have started watching this lecture series by Robert Shiller. Do you know of others? Even more basic would be nice - explanations of P/E ratios, shorting stocks, contracts, etc. Not interested in written resources - have plenty of those. Looking for more interactive displays, with a preference for academic lectures.

The well-regarded Khan Academy has a growing video library on finance.

Here's an excellent search engine for Open Educational Resources - by definition they will be free, (mostly) good quality and openly available.

The Planet Money podcast is great. It's pretty well weighted towards understanding financial things that are currently in the news, but it covers them very solidly and in a very accessible way. It's a good foundation type cast.
