This guide has been compiled to support students in their course work for ECON235 International Macroeconomics.
This guide is maintained by Melody Chin.
This course will cover concepts and tools needed to understand the functioning of the global economy and international financial markets. Using theoretical economic models, we will examine the determinants of the balance of payments, current account deficits, international capital movements, real and nominal exchange rates. We also use these models to discuss relevant current issues such as global imbalances, the sustainability of the U.S. current account deficits, the currency crises, common currency areas, sovereign debt and defaults, and international economic policy coordination.
