It is my job to ensure he attends class and keeps up with the coursework. If any of you witness Mr. Bender engaged in 4S behavior, please let me know. Oh sorry, 4S is shop talk for "Skipping Class, Sleeping in Class, Screwing Off in Class, Sass Talking in Class". You can't miss him, he's the kid with two chips on his shoulders and bad fashion sense. Thank you for your assistance.

I searched in the transcripts for all other lectures and it seems he never mentioned Special Relativity again. Would be really interest what he had in mind when he mentioned it here and how it is related to finance.

Reply lifeform carbon says: July 9, 2019 at 12:22 am @ 5:00 or 6:00 through: This professor seems like a very nice guy, compassionate, seems quite knowledgeable, but apparently stuck in the world of academia – long on adjectives and short on central facts. I'm sure I'll learn a lot but not thrilled with this guy's persona – I hope I'm wrong. I suspect maybe (unlike for the physical sciences) all those who are genuinely interested in investing are out there making money. After all, how exciting could bean counting be as a discipline without being involved in applications? Reply Valerie Price says: July 11, 2019 at 11:37 am Measuring the value of a person or company's success in USD is rather like measuring the success of a person or company in the aluminum Francs issued by the Vichy government of France, or the Confederate paper notes issued by the American Confederacy. That success gets smaller with every unsecured loan written by banks in the US. Lay one cent beside $200,000,000,000,000 in consumer debt, or $22,000,000,000,000, which is the US national debt. When General Electric was worth $26 billion, a link of sausage in the grocery store was .99 cents. The exact same link of sausage now is $9.99. The reality is, the change in the value of the company reflects the willingness of financiers to destroy the very medium of exchange they are trading in. The company was worth more only because the currency became worthless, and after so many employees were fired, many fewer people could earn enough to pay $9.99 for a link of sausage. What is a link of sausage worth? I would give $9.99 in USD for it myself, but I would not take $9.99 for it. I would not accept anything but gold, silver, or diamonds in exchange for my food, because food is important. Everyone has to eat, but if I accept USD as payment, by the time I spend that USD, it will not be enough to buy a sausage link. Precious metals are a storage of lasting value, which is why states and nations have to deposite gold and silver in repositories, in order to trade in the financial markets. It's because financiers willingly destroy the value of the medium of exchange they trade in. Finance Theory really needs to progress to include the potential for destroying the value of the money those financiers are working to earn. That is the key to understanding the boom and bust business cycle. Reply Semih Kumluk says: July 17, 2019 at 10:53 am Watched the whole semester and passed my PhD Proficiency exam.
