Courses: Money and Banking (ECONH307A01)

Fall 2013

This course will focus on the basic features of asset market equilibria and the nature of interactions between private sector agents, the banking system, and the central bank. The course will begin with a description of how asset prices are determined in stock and bond markets, and then move on to a study of more sophisticated financial assets such as forwards, futures, and options. The course will ultimately facilitate a discussion of the 2008 financial crisis.

Prerequisites: Econ 302 and Math 121. Course not open to anyone who has already taken Econ 207 at either Haverford or Bryn Mawr.
