Charles Evans explains some differences between economics and finance, such as how an economist would look at inflation in contrast to how a financial investor would analyze and react to it. He also mentions a disparity in the concept of value, subjective value against accounting value.
From an economic perspective, Evans engages in the analysis of the Austrian School business cycle theory and shows how applying this theory can help investors to better predict the effects of current political and economic trends, applying the theory of Ludwig von Mises as the main source of knowledge.
Further on, he discusses market structure and public goods and provides a brief explanation of the different type of options: call and put options. The lecture ends with suggestions to spot potential financial bubbles and artificial credit booms.
