Monetary Economics: Theory
Semester One 2010
- Not Offered
Semester Two 2010
This course surveys a number of important topics in monetary theory. A few topics such as the implementation of monetary policy in New Zealand draw heavily on microeconomics. The lectures cover topics ranging from asymmetric information in credit markets to the term structure of interest rates. The topical nature of the course is brought out by a discussion of the causes and consequences of currency crises, foreign exchange market intervention, and the recent drive towards currency unions.
Entry to any honours level course is subject to the approval of the Head of Department.
