Watch Richard Duncan’s Course: CAPITALISM IN CRISIS
I have recorded a two-hour course. It’s called Capitalism In Crisis: The Global Economic Crisis Explained. The course is broken into 15 short lectures and is available on an on-line teaching platform called Udemy.
In this course, I use 150 charts and slides to explain how the crisis in the global economy came about and why policymakers have been forced to respond to it with trillion dollar budget deficits and trillions of dollars of fiat money creation.
After taking this course, you will be much better positioned to anticipate how the crisis will evolve from here, how policymakers will react next and what that will mean for the direction of asset prices. You will also have a much clearer understanding about what kind of policies will be required to permanently resolve this crisis.
Here is the URL to the Course:
