FOR YOUR NOTES: You are a high roller and you want to play in the “big-leagues”. Which financial market is the largest of the four types? In fact, rank them all. Prove it; source it. What do you think explains the size difference? “Imagine you had to marry the first person you ever kissed.” Think about the situation this quotation would create. How do financial markets solve this problem for investors? See this link, complete the activity then try to answer the question in the discussion section.
Before you are done, make sure you understand the types and the role of financial markets in the economy.
