About the course
The course puts the global economic crisis 2008/2009 in a longer historical perspective. It gives historical examples on how speculation manias have been followed by financial crises. It also provides the theoretical tools needed in order to understand financial markets, entrepreneurship and crises management during processes of change. The course highlights how the actions of banks and companies during booms have resulted in profound economic crises such as those during the 1930's and 2008/2009.
