  • Money and Finance: Crash Course Economics #11

    So, we've been putting off a kind of basic question here. What is money? What is currency? How are the two different. Well, not to give away too much, but money has a few basic functions. It acts as a store of value, a medium of exchange, and as a unit of account. Money isn't just bills and coins. It can be anything that meets these three criteria. In US prisons, apparently, pouches of Mackerel are currency. Yes, mackerel the fish. Paper and coins work as money because they're backed by the government, which is an advantage over mackerel. So, once you've got money, you need finance. We'll talk about borrowing, lending, interest, and stocks and bonds. Also, this episode features a giant zucchini, which Adriene grew in her garden. So that's cool. Special thanks to Dave Hunt for permission t...

The Fund, known its initials, IMF, lends countries money when no one else will, so it is sometimes known as the banker of last resort. With its huge oil wealth, Saudi Arabia is today the 8th biggest donor of funds to the Washington-based organization, and in the last few years, Saudi economists have begun working there.

    So, if economics is about choices and how we use our resources, econ probably has a lot to say about the environment, right? Right! In simple terms, pollution is just a market failure. The market is producing more pollution than society wants. This week, Adriene and Jacob focus on the environment, and how economics can be used to control and reduce pollution and emissions. You'll learn about supply and demand, incentives, and how government intervention influences the environment. Crash Course is on Patreon!

    A lot of wealth is gone, and there is no reason for it to come back. That was the summation of Robert C. Merton, one of three Nobel Prizewinning economists who joined intellectual forces last week at the School of Managements three-day Future of Life Cycle Saving and Investing Conference. Merton, along with Robert Solow and Paul Samuelson, took questions about the impending retirement savings crisis from PBS NewsHour correspondent Paul Solman at an October 23 after-dinner panel discussion, What Retirement Means to Me, that will be aired in part on the public television program. I believe this is a permanent decline, said Merton. I do not think this is a liquidity event.

  • The Difference Between Finance And Economics !

    Finance and economics are often taught as separate subjects, but they are interrelated disciplines that influence one another in many ways. Economics is a social science. It studies the production, consumption and distribution of goods and services, as well as larger topics such as inflation, recession, and supply and demand. It explains how a government taxes and spends. It teaches the impacts that policy and events can have on business conditions, and it gives investors a tool to use when analyzing companies and markets. Careers in economics include teaching and research. Banks and other corporations employ economists to forecast growth, inflation, interest rates and so on. Some investors listen closely to what economists say about the markets, and others don’t. In many respects, fina...

  • Labor Markets and Minimum Wage: Crash Course Economics #28

    How much should you get paid for your job? Well, that depends on a lot of factors. Your skill set, the demand for the skills you have, and what other people are getting paid around you all factor in. In a lot of ways, labor markets work on supply and demand, just like many of the markets we talk about in Crash Course Econ. But, again, there aren't a lot of pure, true markets in the world. There are all kinds of oddities and regulations that change the way labor markets work. One common (and kind of controversial one) is the minimum wage. The minimum wage has potential upsides and downsides, and we'll take a look at the various arguments for an against it. Crash Course is on Patreon!

  • What's all the Yellen About? Monetary Policy and the Federal Reserve: Crash Course Economics #10

    This week on Crash Course Economics, we're talking about monetary policy. The reality of the world is that the United States (and most of the world's economies) are, to varying degrees, Keynesian. When things go wrong, economically, the central bank of the country intervenes to try aand get things back on track. In the United States, the Federal Reserve is the organization that steps in to use monetary policy to steer the economy. When the Fed, as it's called, does step in, there are a few different tacks it can take. The Fed can change interest rates, or it can change the money supply. This is pretty interesting stuff, and it's what we're getting into today. Crash Course is on Patreon!

    What do hedge funds think of technical analysis? Corvin Codirla, ex-hedge fund manager and independent traders comments. Do you need to be good at maths to make money trading? Why aren't economists wealthy / successful investors? Or are they? Some of them love it and some of them hate it. It also depends what you mean by technical analysis. If technical analysis means optically looking at charts and looking for patterns like head and shoulders..etc it becomes very difficult to test. If something cannot be written down in a set of rules, then it is not useful. Others will argue that technical analysis is more of an art than a science. Knowing maths doesn't necessarily make you smart.

http://sensibleinvesting.tv -- the independent voice of passive investing A remarkable 54-minute film featuring some of the world's top economists and academics and demonstrating: * how the claims of active fund managers to be able to beat the market are largely a myth * how costs are the biggest drag on performance - and why active costs more * how passive investing offers the best experience for the vast majority of investors * the benefits of a diversified portfolio in guaranteeing consistent returns * why passive investing is better for your health * why active investing has held sway for so many years.... * ... but why things may be changing * and why passive is the rational, mathematically proven route to investing success. Investing for the future... It's an issue none of can afford to ignore. No one's job is safe these days... How would you cope if you lost yours? We're all living longer too... So are you saving enough to fund 25 years or more of retirement? Can you really afford to pay for your children or grandchildren to go to university - or help them onto the property ladder? And what about all those holidays you promised yourself? We entrust the vast bulk of our investments to fund managers. Here in the UK, according to Her Majesty's Treasury, the industry has more than four TRILLION pounds of investors' money under management. Fund managers invest people's savings wherever they see fit - mainly in equities, or shares in listed companies. They claim to be experts at making our making grow, using their expert knowledge to pick the shares that will outperform the market. But all too often the returns they produce are considerably lower than the average return of a benchmark index like the FTSE 100 - or the S&P 500 in the States. For veteran investment guru John Bogle, the problem is simple. Fund managers just aren't as smart as they like to think they are. As it means trading against the view of numerous market participants with superior information, buying or selling a security is effectively just a bet. So, whilst your fund manager might lead you to believe it's his knowledge or intelligence that enables you to beat the market, he's really no better than a gambler. So, you might be lucky enough to choose the right fund manager. But you could just as easily pick the wrong one. According to the financial services company Bestinvest, there are currently nearly £10 billion of UK investors' money languishing in what it calls dog funds - in other words, funds which have underperperformed their benchmark index for at least three consecutive years. Ultimately, of course, fund managers are businesses. They exist to make money for themselves. They want our business - even if it means persuading us to invest in a fund which they themselves wouldn't want to put their own money in. It's now time to look at what it actually costs us to invest. Fund managers are, of course, businesses. And, like all business, they have overheads. Running a big fund management company doesn't come cheap - esepcially when top managers earn around £2 million a year, including bonuses. And remember, it's you, the customer, who picks up the tab. Ultimately, though, fund managers need to make a profit. In fact they'e making around £10 billion from us every year - and that's regardless of whether or not they manage to produce a profit for us. Part of the challenge is working out exactly what we are being charged. Investors typically use something called the annual Total Expense Ratio, or TER, to compare the cost of investing in different funds. But, the TER excludes dealing commission, stamp duty and other turnover costs that can add considerably to the expense of investing over time. So, apart from those hidden charges, what else are we having to pay? More importantly, what sort of impact do charges have on the value of our investments? And the bad news doesn't stop there. Despite a marked increase in competition, management charges in the UK have been steadily rising over the last ten years. There are some encouraging signs for consumers. The FSA's Retail Distribution Review will require fund managers to be fairer and more transparent when it comes to charges. In the meantime, investors should be on their guard.

Adam Smith was no uncritical apologist for capitalism: he wanted to understand how capitalism could be both fruitful and good.

A lot of wealth is gone, and there is no reason for it to come back. That was the summation of Robert C. Merton, one of three Nobel Prizewinning economists who joined intellectual forces last week at the School of Managements three-day Future of Life Cycle Saving and Investing Conference. Merton, along with Robert Solow and Paul Samuelson, took questions about the impending retirement savings crisis from PBS NewsHour correspondent Paul Solman at an October 23 after-dinner panel discussion, What Retirement Means to Me, that will be aired in part on the public television program. I believe this is a permanent decline, said Merton. I do not think this is a liquidity event. He told the audience, which included faculty from business schools around the world, that $4 trillion has been lost in real estate, and another $8 trillion to $9 trillion has been lost in the stock market. Asked by Solman if the current down market makes this a good time to invest, Samuelson, perhaps the preeminent American economist of the 20th century and the sole winner of the 1970 Nobel, expressed uncertainty. History teaches no lessons, he said. You dont know when to get back in. Speaking to a packed house in SMGs fourth-floor dining room, the Nobel laureates several times digressed with teasing banter. Asked when he planned to retire, the 93-year-old Samuelson explained that he would have to grow up before he considered retirement. Solow, who at 84 is the Foundation Fellow at the Russell Sage Foundation (where he succeeded Mertons father, sociologist Robert K. Merton), said he believed that he had retired several years earlier when he gave up his teaching salary at MIT. Both Samuelson and Solow taught economics for many years at MIT; Merton is the John and Natty McArthur University Professor at Harvard Business School. When Solman questioned the experts about the distribution of their own investments, they returned some surprising answers. Solow, who won the Nobel in 1987, said he had no idea what was in his portfolio. I just never paid any attention, he said. Thats because I dont care. And Im lucky to have a wife who doesnt care. Merton described his portfolio as almost perfect — you just have to get short. The Harvard economist, who won the Nobel Prize in economics in 1997 for his study of stock options, later revealed that the bulk of his portfolio was in a Global Index Fund, Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities, and one hedge fund. He said he had been invested in a commercial real estate fund until recently, but dropped that when its value rose too quickly for his comfort. Searching for a more optimistic note, Merton pointed out that most people are still living in the houses theyve been used to living in. But, he reminded the audience, the value of those houses is considerably less than it used to be. In the coming years, he said, the people who will fare best are those who enjoy their work. If you happen to be doing what you like, he said, thats a pretty good deal. Asked what advice he had for young people today, Solow offered three short words: Earn and save.

Finance and economics are often taught as separate subjects, but they are interrelated disciplines that influence one another in many ways. Economics is a social science. It studies the production, consumption and distribution of goods and services, as well as larger topics such as inflation, recession, and supply and demand. It explains how a government taxes and spends. It teaches the impacts that policy and events can have on business conditions, and it gives investors a tool to use when analyzing companies and markets. Careers in economics include teaching and research. Banks and other corporations employ economists to forecast growth, inflation, interest rates and so on. Some investors listen closely to what economists say about the markets, and others don’t. In many respects, finance is an offshoot of economics. Individuals with economic backgrounds have made some of the most notable achievements in finance. Finance entails the study of prices, interest rates, money flows and the financial markets. Billions of dollars are at stake when it comes to pricing loans, investments and insurance products. Finance provides the means to understand pricing and the valuation of future cash flows. It also helps investors and business managers evaluate proposals and allocate capital. Finance degrees are common among Wall Street analysts, bankers and fund managers. Determining the fair value for many investment products is a basic part of finance. Commercial bankers and insurance brokers also often have finance backgrounds. Historically, economics has been more concerned with the big picture, such as how a country is doing, while finance focuses on companies and industries. Both have valid uses and applications, and both are important.

How much should you get paid for your job? Well, that depends on a lot of factors. Your skill set, the demand for the skills you have, and what other people are getting paid around you all factor in. In a lot of ways, labor markets work on supply and demand, just like many of the markets we talk about in Crash Course Econ. But, again, there aren't a lot of pure, true markets in the world. There are all kinds of oddities and regulations that change the way labor markets work. One common (and kind of controversial one) is the minimum wage. The minimum wage has potential upsides and downsides, and we'll take a look at the various arguments for an against it. Crash Course is on Patreon!

This week on Crash Course Economics, we're talking about monetary policy. The reality of the world is that the United States (and most of the world's economies) are, to varying degrees, Keynesian. When things go wrong, economically, the central bank of the country intervenes to try aand get things back on track. In the United States, the Federal Reserve is the organization that steps in to use monetary policy to steer the economy. When the Fed, as it's called, does step in, there are a few different tacks it can take. The Fed can change interest rates, or it can change the money supply. This is pretty interesting stuff, and it's what we're getting into today. Crash Course is on Patreon!

What do hedge funds think of technical analysis? Corvin Codirla, ex-hedge fund manager and independent traders comments. Do you need to be good at maths to make money trading? Why aren't economists wealthy / successful investors? Or are they? Some of them love it and some of them hate it. It also depends what you mean by technical analysis. If technical analysis means optically looking at charts and looking for patterns like head and shoulders..etc it becomes very difficult to test. If something cannot be written down in a set of rules, then it is not useful. Others will argue that technical analysis is more of an art than a science. Knowing maths doesn't necessarily make you smart.
