This course provides an overview of the working of the financial and economic system and seeks to provide an understanding of how a financial economy operates. Problems arising from asymmetric information in markets are shown to be of vital importance in appreciating the structure and functioning of the financial system. Research in the areas of money, banking and financial markets is highly active, and deals with issues continuously in the news and the subject of vigorous policy debate. International concerns are also increasingly influencing the direction of discussion on financial economic issues. In the course, emphasis will be given to the role of asymmetric information in financial markets and associated regulatory issues that arise, the fundamentals of interest rates and financial institutions, the money supply process and the conduct of the Federal Reserve, the behavior of exchange rates and the international financial system, and rational expectations and the working of efficient markets.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
