Yet in the last several decades finance has become increasingly centralised, distanced, and mechanistic. Bhide's lecture explains how bad theories and mis-regulation led to this dangerous divergence between the real econo

Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Electric and Magnetic Fields
This session will introduce you to electric and magnetic fields. We’ll look at what we mean by a field and at what electric charge is and relate the two through Gauss’s theorem. From this we’ll derive Coulomb’s law for the force between charges. Then we’ll look at the concept of electrical potential which is related to the work done in moving a charge through a field. We’ll return to the notion of capacitance which we used in session 4, this time looking at how capacitance is compute
