Course Description

This course offers fundamentals of money, banking and finance (markets) with focuses on current issues in the banking industry and state/banks dynamics related to economic growth finance and regulation. Based on practical case studies, it mobilises strong economic history components and low level of mathematic formalism. Students are required to read course materials ahead of each lecture. Considering the large specter of content reviewed in the course, a high and motivating work load is to be anticipated. Each lecture starts with a review of last week economic and financial issues, then a review of compulsory readings, then the lecture itself. The course is based on classic lectures & readings, discussions with students and inclass applications/case studies.
