Description

The Persian Empire is the companion book to the audio/video series of the same name. It contains a full transcript of the series as well as the complete course guidebook which includes lecture notes, bibliography, and more.

About this series:

What are your most important financial goals? Sending your kids to college? Buying a new home? Retiring early? Having the freedom to not worry about whether you can afford to buy a new car or go on vacation? It's your financial resources that are the determining factor in how you're able to
answer these and a host of other questions. And few things are as important in determining just what those financial resources are as your understanding of where and how to invest.

Investing, and the skills to succeed at it, play critical roles in building and maintaining your financial resources. And investment opportunities are available to everyone. No matter where on your financial timeline you may be—whether you're just starting out, approaching retirement, or somewhere in between—there is no question that improving and enhancing your investment skills can have a positive impact on your financial life and in turn, your life goals.

Understanding Investments helps you do just that. In 24 lectures, it introduces the fundamentals of investing to those new to the subject while broadening and deepening the knowledge of more experienced investors. Taught by Professor Connel Fullenkamp, an award-winning educator from Duke University who regularly consults in the world of international finance, these lectures clearly explain the various kinds of financial markets, the different kinds of investments available to you, and the pros and cons of each. Even more important: The course shows you how to evaluate each of these in terms of your own financial situation.

Essential Knowledge for Newcomers and Experienced Investors

If you're a newcomer to investing, Understanding Investments will give you the confidence—and specific tools—to

get your feet wet in the investment world and begin building your investment portfolio, even if you have to start small;
better understand the recommendations and advice of more experienced investors and financial advisors;
develop your own personal investment plan; and
move toward realizing your plan's goals with as little anxiety and fear as possible.

And if you happen to be that more experienced investor, this course will

introduce you to some advanced investment strategies and opportunities;
show you how to stay on top of your portfolio, and
adjust its direction as economic conditions—or your own plans—change.

In addition to making you a more knowledgeable and confident investor, Understanding Investments will also help you make sense of the financial news that makes up an increasing share of what you read in our newspapers, watch on television, or discover on the Internet. And it will also help you better grasp the financial condition and performance of the company at which you work, which can be invaluable in making key career decisions.

Using case studies, actual trading examples, and visual aids—including charts, graphs, and even the step-by-step construction of a simple financial planning spreadsheet—Professor Fullenkamp makes every point clear, so that no previous knowledge of the subject is required. You'll learn how the world of money works in plain English, with the only insider jargon being the specific terms you need to know in order to safely navigate the investment marketplace and understand what is being offered to you.

Learn How to Invest with Confidence and Success

In Understanding Investments, you learn the essential information every investor needs to know, including

the basics of the stock market;
investment options like stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, as well as other instruments like exchange-traded funds (or "ETFs") that go beyond these standard choices;
how to read and understand stock quotes and indexes;
tools and simple calculation techniqu
