ECO 5640 - International Macroeconomics (3)

When Offered: On Demand
This course aims to provide a basic knowledge of how international financial markets work. It is a combination of lectures and discussions covering theory and real-world policies, events, and evidence. The course can be broadly divided into three parts - foreign exchange markets, international financial transactions, and economic policies. The first part focuses on exchange rate behavior, foreign exchange rate markets, the determinants of the exchange rates. The second part of the course studies international financial transactions in a global macroeconomy. The goal of the last part of the course is to understand how the choices governments make about monetary and fiscal policies, or about exchange rate regime and capital mobility, affect economic outcomes, and why crises occur.
Prerequisite: ECO 20400 (Principles of Economics-Macro).
