The causes of a financial crisis and how various countries have responded to their specific crises; the relationship between financial crises and other economic developments, particularly in emerging market and developing economies; how global financial arrangements have evolved to help manage the risks of contagion.
Learning Objectives: • To review our understanding of open economy macro and the linkages between financial markets and other markets and the channels by which economic shocks are transmitted • To better understand the causes and impacts of financial crises (viz., currency, debt, banking) in emerging market economies and the firms operating in these markets • To assess the policy options available to policymakers and the linkages and interactions, both nationally and internationally, of those policy actions. • To drill down on the economic implication of crises and the alternative ways of dealing with specific shocks to the financial sector, including traditional and unconventional policies, and analyze the implications of those actions for firms and governments, • To examine specific country cases and ascertain how governments dealt with their crises and to assess the effectiveness of those measures in a public policy sense • To gain basic lessons from financial crises and an improved understanding of the measures being proposed to limit their frequency and associated contagion • To come up to speed on global efforts to reduce prudential risks in banking and other financial markets and to examine regulations that are in place to that effect. • To review on a global macro-financial level the degree to which supervision, especially cross border, can insulate a domestic financial sector and the national regulatory actions needed to complement those efforts.
