Henrik Warne's review is spot-on; I will not duplicate what he said. Just want to add that although Timothy Geithner is the headliner, he only made an appearance in 3 of 11 weeks. Andrew Metrick did all the heavy lifting, and he is both a good explainer of ideas and notably better than Geithner.
In my opinion the course could be improved with a head-on examination of critics' viewpoints regarding the crisis and the response to it. There should be an entire lecture, near the end of the course, where the critics' arguments are laid out one-by-one and rebutted (or perhaps agreed with). As-is, the class is primarily a financial-history class which mostly takes for granted that the response to each phase of the crisis was appropriate.
My goal in taking the class was simply to have a more educated opinion on what happened and why, and that goal was reached. I recommend taking this class.
