UCD Banking and Finance

Just curious, but what are they teaching at UCD's Banking & Finance courses these days? The Black-Scholes black hole? Or maybe financial intermediation and its role in destroying the nation. I don't know. Just can't imagine how the lecturers are carrying on teaching this stuff.

And, how many of UCD's Banking & Finance graduates helped lead the banks to destruction? What value is there to the state in subsidizing this sort of education?

The government is looking for cut-backs. I suggest they start by eliminating UCD's banking & finance department. And, just to be fair, they should do the same for every university banking & finance department. No sense in wasting money in a shrinking education budget.

{And, that should probably be the policy for every university in the western world.}
