This seminar reviews recent developments in international macroeconomics in a broad selection of areas. The topics that will be covered include small open economy models of inter-temporal trade, international business cycles, patterns and puzzles in international capital flows, models of exchange rate determination and asset prices, international consumption risk sharing, and financial crises. A basic working knowledge of macroeconomics will be a prerequisite, as most lectures and presentations will be based on published or working papers. The class will also involve presenting and discussing current papers, and writing referee reports. Masters students interested in taking this course should consult the instructor beforehand.
