ABOUT THIS UNIT 1. This unit studies macroeconomic theory and policy in a global context. The evolution of international money and capital markets is described. The operation of the foreign exchange market is examined. The models of open economies are used to understand important issues in international macroeconomics including: the exchange rate; the current account; international capital mobility; exchange rate regimes; monetary unions. The unit also develops the macroeconomic implications of monetary and fiscal policies for small and large open economies for different regimes.
