The focus of the course will revolve around understanding current events, especially as related to the recent financial crisis, and understanding the policy changes that have been made as a result of the crisis. There are two parts to this course. In the first part of the course we will study two of the main financial asset markets: bond markets and stock markets. We will study the concept and determination of interest rates; the risk structure and the term structure of interest rates; stock pricing and the efficient markets hypothesis. In the second part of the course we will study the monetary and financial system. We will study how money is created, the tools of monetary policy, the commercial banking industry and its links to monetary policy and the Federal Reserve System, and how monetary policy affects the economy in general.
