This course will provide a selective overview of topics at the cutting-edge of academic research and policy debates about the international financial system. Main areas will include the effects of financial globalization on growth, volatility, and the transmission of business cycles. The course will also examine the determinants of the direction and composition of capital flows. It will then cover the causes and effects of the financial crisis and what implications it has for the research agenda in international finance and macroeconomics, with particular emphasis on the implications for monetary policy and financial regulation. This course is intended for advanced Ph.D. students, especially those in search of thesis topics, and will require extensive student involvement in preparing research proposals and critiques of existing literature. Students will develop their own research ideas during the course and are required to write a substantive research paper.
