Manias, Panics, and Crashes
Academic Noncredit

This course presents the causes and consequences of financial crises from a historical perspective, and in this context discusses alternative economic views on how markets work and the role of the government in stabilizing the economy. It will give a historic account of financial crises from the 1636 tulip mania to the crash of 2008, and introduce basic economic concepts including resource allocation, rationality, herd behavior, uncertainty, risk, speculation, market failure, and regulation.

This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.

Online book and material fees may be added up until the first week of class. Students may opt out during the first two weeks of class.
