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.
