  1. Can someone please give me a link to the complete reading list for finance at MIT? Apart from Brealey and Myers of course.

  2. Professor Lo is fantastic in his ability to present the complex material painlessly!
    Not only clear in his communication, but also with a sprinkling of humor.

  3. Honest i never like finance but now i really like it, and I am planing to go through all the course. Thanks

  4. What his example about establishing value demonstrated to me is the fundamental irrationality of 'free markets'. We have investors, alleged professionals throwing money at investment products that they can not really evaluate empirically. Because as Enron and Bear Stearns demonstrated companies like icebergs have a lot going on underneath the surface. Yet we laude capitalism as both efficient and effective when it should really be regarded as yet another faith based philosophy like the world’s major religions…only more dangerous. After all disillusionment can't make you homeless, jobless and bankrupt.

  5. Is there access to the practice problems? If not are there other free resources that anyone is aware of?
