This section is taught asynchronously. This course seeks to introduce international finance concepts and models and discuss their implications on financial stability, economic growth and social outcomes in open economies. Students will be encouraged to use their analytical skills to critically assess policy measures in the international finance arena and formulate sound policy recommendations themselves. The course has a clearly empirical focus, and descriptive and econometric evidence from both developed countries and developing countries will be discussed throughout the classes, in many cases to defy common knowledge in policy circles. In addition, current events will be used as a trigger for the application of ideas and/or data introduced in class.
