EC 312 - Understanding International Finance Through the Lens of the European Union

Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 0
Credit Hours: 3

In this course, we will use the policies and structure of the European Union (EU) and its subset, the Euro zone, to study and understand the theory and principles of the macroeconomic issues of international economics. In particular, we will analyze the EU’s ‘single monetary policy and heterogeneous fiscal policies’ structure to understand how a nation’s monetary and fiscal policies are affected by the openness of its economy, how it affects domestic growth, and how it affects the connected foreign exchange markets. The objective of this class is for you to understand, apply and analyze the implications.
