While ideally this course would be entirely positive, this course must include warnings about aspects of prevailing investor guidance to avoid.
The world of investor information and guidance is too full of effects of recent and current university investment education that may be fine for financial and academic interests but are misleading to individual investors and their advisors.
Certainly, this course must warn about the terms “expected return,” “return,” and “risk.” Can warnings that these terms are “red flags” of information and guidance that’s likely to be misleading cover most of what this course should warn about?
Can the warnings be effective if presented positively, as rules for what investors and advisors should insist on seeing, rather than negatively through citation of things to beware of?
Can the needed warnings be most effectively presented as a short essay or summary? Or might it be more effective to provide a set of short readings featuring comments of various authorities, like some of those in this website’s Debates pages?
Hard to tell from here. They are hidden.
