FinanceBasics is presented by Larry Schrenk and is a series of talks providing a basic and informal introduction to various concepts and issues in modern finance. It will not, however, offer any stock tips or specific investment advice. The goal is to inform listeners of the ideas, methods, history and concepts of both corporate finance and investing. The presenter is Assistant Professor of Finance at the Robert G. Merrick School of Business, The University of Baltimore (http://business.ubalt.edu) which offers an online, AACSB accredited MBA program (http://business.ubalt.edu/ubtowsonmba/webmba.html). Comments and suggestions are welcome and may be sent to financebasics@comcast.net, but it will not be possible to respond to individual e-mails.
