Advanced concepts, where used, are developed from first principles, although students who have taken Intermediate Macroeconomics and Microeconomics will find the material most accessible. Some knowledge of International Economics is also helpful. Class meets three hours a week, section meets one hour a week. Admission. According to Department policy, you must attend your first section meeting or your space will be given to another student. The instructor and TAs do not have the power to admit students to the course (or to readmit you if you are dropped). Students not already enrolled and wishing admission must consult this website for instructions: Economics Department policies and not your instructor and TAs determine admissions priorities. Sections. Consult the online schedule of classes for the most up-to-date information. Text and Readings. The text for the course is Barry Eichengreen, Globalizing Capital (Princeton 1998, paperback edition), for sale at the ASUC store and your favorite on-line bookseller. The book and reader are also on reserve at Moffitt. Items with web links should accessible by linking through Readers. Readers are available from Copy Central on Hearst at Euclid by North Gate. Only items that cannot be downloaded from the web are included in the reader. A few items are not available in the reader or the web because permission to reprint or link was denied. Copies of these items are on reserve at Moffitt Library. Grades. Your grade will be based on two in-class midterms (each of which will account for 30% of the grade) and the final exam (40%). No make-up exams will be administered. All students are expected to take the final exam at the scheduled time. The exam group for this course is 15. The final exam will therefore be administered on Tuesday, May 20, 5:00-8:00 p.m. Students missing one midterm will have the weights on the remaining midterm adjusted to 40% and the final to 60%. Students missing two midterms or the final should not expect to pass the course.
