Class News (335/402): Extra Credit #4

Here is still another extra credit opportunity.  Watch the PBS special, “Ascent of Money,” and write a 2-4 paper (typed, double-spaced) summarizing the rise of modern finance (at least according to Professor Ferguson, the narrator).  Be sure you address his take on the root causes of current crisis.  This paper is due Monday, March 29th (in  class). As before, satisfactory work will earn a “100″ on a quiz.  You can watch (courtesy of PBS) by clicking here: Ascent of Money.

Here is a website with lots of great background resources on the financial crisis: Financial Crisis for Beginners
