ECON 442 - International Finance
Section: 001
Term: FA 2018
Subject: Economics (ECON)
Department: LSA Economics
Enforced Prerequisites:
ECON 402 with a grade of at least C-; or Graduate standing.
May not be repeated for credit.
Rackham Information:
Rackham credit requires additional work.
Primary Instructor:

This is a course on International Macroeconomics and Finance. The goal of the course is to provide students with the tools to understand how people, firms and governments interact across countries, with an emphasis on capital and exchange markets.

The course will be organized around a few main topics: (i) Introduction to the global macroeconomy, (ii) Exchange rates, (ii) Balance of payments, and (iv) Crises. For each topic we will discuss evidence and develop models that help us understand the facts.

Course Requirements:

Evaluation will consist on two midterms and a final exam.

Intended Audience:

The course is aimed at senior undergraduates in Economics.

We will use tools from intermediate microeconomics throughout the course; hence, although not an enforced prerequisite, I strongly suggest exposure to ECON 401 or an equivalent course.

Class Format:

The course will be based on lectures, as well as discussion sections led by a GSI.
