Participant Testimonial

"Absolutely engrossing, entertaining and enlightening. This is a teacher who is humble enough to share knowledge, but great enough so as to make it fun. For those of us who attended, our lives are changed - never again will we idly listen to the news about quantitative easing, or bond interest rates going up or down, or economic crisis in Greece or the austerity measures in EU... the connections between the world economy and our lives, our own financial prospects as well as our businesses' have been firmly explained and solidified in this short 3-day session. Look forward to learning more."  - Shoma C.
