International finance is a constantly evolving subject that deals very much with real world issues such as balance-of-payments problems and policy, the implications of macroeconomic linkages between economies and the causes of exchange rate and interest rate movements. Floating exchange rates have been characterized by high volatility and substantial deviations from purchasing power parities. Exciting new theories were developed to explain these phenomena and have been subject to close empirical scrutiny. The objective of this course is to provide the student with an independent working knowledge of these theoretical and empirical issues.
