FIL 240

Class on Tuesday, October 18, will begin with cleaning up some topics related to bonds before we move on to the subject of Risk and Rate of Return.


Some, but not all, of articles below are assignments which will be stated specifically in class as such.
Political Commentary
    For a serious walk on the wild side, the remastered video, Zeitgeist: Addendum, is available at the official Zeitgeist site. Be forewarned: this is the definitive movie for conspiracy theory fans; it goes all the way from religion, through 9/11, to the U.S. banking system, and finally into the North American Union and RFID chips. There's something for anyone who's ever wondered if what we are told might not be the truth. The movie is two hours long, so have some popcorn ready to watch the show. (And, no, I am not recommending this movie; it very well might offend the socks off you.)
