Two Saturdays: May 31 and June 7th.
The objective of this course is to study in depth a few selected topics in International Finance, particularly international financial crisis. We will cover currency crises, banking crises, and debt crises. Beyond that, we will explore aspects of international capital flows, contagion, asset bubbles and liquidity. Our focus will be on applied theoretical models and their implications for understanding empirical regularities and economic policy.
