Excellent presentation of this topic by Professor Salemi. His lectures promote insights at the level I recall from B-school, but explained so clearly, simply, and enthusiastically that learners at all levels will gain a great perspective. Believe that by the end he achieves the goal of convincing you that this is a critical topic that everyone should understand, especially those of us with present and future stakes in the US.

I graduated B School 30 years ago and covered all of this material then. This series was a pleasure to review the topics without the pressure of tests. The professor has a style of delivery that makes an otherwise dry topic very interesting.
