Does the date on this video (Fall 2008) make all the content irrelevant

ovbio finanza es lo primero, sin dinero no te prestan los bancos, te ven o
te juzgan por lo que ganas, los bancos nunca pierden, saben financiar solo
para ellos, y nosostros nos dejamos, MIT the best and the best.

yoyaya007 says:

I want to understand why MIT uploads videos only after 5 years or decades
that they have been taped ??

MIT OpenCourseWare says:

Brealey, Richard, Stewart Myers, and Franklin Allen. Principles of
Corporate Finance. 9th ed. New York, NY: McGraw Hill, 2007. ISBN:

Nico Mkhatvari says:

Where can I get the problem&solution package?

Hans Gustav Krosing says:

What is the full name of the “brealey,myers and allen“ book?

Jerry Kitich says:

The other question is how liquid the market is. In other words, how many
students have cash on them and what is the maximum amount of cash any one
person has. Which could be enhanced if people thought of and were willing
to pool their money. That was the constraint that was set. Furthered by the
professor making the statement that cash is payable by the end of class, to
reduce counter-party risk.

Jerry Kitich says:

Is there a way to order MIT Sloan Finance Problems and Solutions
Collection? Or download it somewhere?

Sarah Kerrigan says:

Thank you MIT…

Americus Huynh says:

does anybody know where can I download “MIT Sloan Finance Problems and
Solutions” Collection which the Professor mentioned in the lecture? Thanks

Gogargoat says:

I feel like i just got a tour of the giant temple built on top of the
entirely subjective notion of ownership. If i own a pen, is it written
somewhere in the objective reality that the pen belongs to me?
