Finance for Everyone

Finance for Everyone


– Capitalism, free
markets, and its variations that look after its
citizens, is and has been an engine of prosperity for billions of people around the world. It may be the best system we
have in the history of mankind, and yet, the same system produces
excesses where 85 people are now collectively worth
more than 3.5 billion people. (thoughtful music) In this system of paradoxes, we have hedge fund managers making more than 4 billion
dollars in one year and bankers earning more in a minute than most people earn in an entire year. How can it be that in
this fantastic system of wealth creation,
companies, small and large with stellar track records suddenly, in a matter of days, become worthless. One answer is, money. Money. It creates excesses
but it also presents a means to solve some of the most
wicked problems we confront. That’s why we need to understand it. There’s more to money
than earning and spending. There are simple truths
that apply to us all, regardless of our financial background or money connections. Surely, if we manage money or better yet, avoid mismanaging it, regardless of whether it
appears in our personal, corporate, or public lives. We can protect our hard earned savings. The truth is we need a language to understand the financial noise. We need to develop our financial toolkit to tackle these wicked problems and we need to believe that our full participation
in all things financial will make a difference. I’m Arshad Ahmad. I’ve had the privilege to
teach in some of the top universities in North
America, Europe, and Asia. And I now have a greater privilege, to teach you and share over 30 years of my expertise in finance
and educational psychology. My goal is to simplify what has become a complicated and illusive subject. Using thought provoking activities and the latest in digital learning, this specialization will enable you to think financially. Behind the numbers and the charts, are simple truths, that shape
evidence-based financial decisions. And beyond the concepts
and financial tool kits, I’m inviting you to please
join me to make a difference, in not only your own financial prosperity but also the communities that you serve. This is Finance for Everyone.
