Our Financial Market Economics Course is designed with business managers in mind.  Students will learn the fundamentals of microeconomics and theory of the firm, macroeconomics and performance of the economy plus consumer spending, income & GDP, inflation and prices, the labor market and wage determination, money and banking, monetary policy and the Federal Reserve, and financial literacy.


This course also introduces students to daily real-time analysis of actual current economic and financial market developments at home and around the world, economic methodology, creating arguments, and empirical analysis and verification.



Economic and financial literacy is of critical importance in today's fractured financial services industry and complex domestic and international economic landscape.  


When it comes to financial market economics, the intersection between financial markets and the real-world application of economic theory, there is something new to learn each and every day.

Complex economic and financial decisions confront us daily in both our professional and personal life.  The sooner we learn to understand and manage these complexities and the economic and financial world in which we operate the better will be the outcomes.

Economics and finance courses are typically offered only as electives in America's high schools. While many colleges require a semester of micro or macroeconomics, many do not.  At POLICYMATTERS USA we believe economics and finance courses should be required for high school juniors and seniors, and again as college freshman and sophomores.


We have established this Financial Market Economics (FME) course to help better prepare students and professionals to succeed in this risky and complex economic and financial world we live in today.   There is not a course offered like this in any high school or college in Connecticut.  

Continuing education and training are critical elements to ensure better outcomes related to success in post-secondary education, vocation and career choice, business formation and decisions, public policy formation, investing and saving, retirement security, and the overall performance of the U.S. economy.


The study of economics and financial markets, and their role in determining how the world works, should be given a higher priority in education.


The FME Course is a college-level program.  The curriculum condenses a semester of college work into a fifteen hour program that is flexible in content, pace, and scheduling, at just a fraction of the cost.

This course should be required for all Americans, certainly for all high school and college students, and for those financial services professionals and public policy makers who have never had an opportunity to take a financial market economics course.  FME is a difference maker.    

To gain Certification (Financial Market Economist - Level I) students must pass a 60-question multiple choice exam (Certification is optional).
