Curricula and Syllabi in Monetary Economics
This course page supports a course on international monetary economics as taught by Olivier Jeanne at Johns Hopkins University in 2010. It presents theory and applies it towards gaining an understanding of recent events and current policy issues. The theory presented in this course covers a broad range of topics including exchange rate determination, monetary and fiscal policy in an open economy (that is, and economy that trades goods and assets with the rest of the world), balance of payments crises, the choice of exchange rate systems, and international debt. These theoretical frameworks enable the discussion of topics such as the current global financial crisis, global financial imbalances, the Chinese exchange rate regime, and proposed changes in the international financial architecture. It includes a course syllabus, lectures notes / slides and exam papers. The site is no longer online, so the link is to the Web Archive's copy.
