course

This course provides a graduate-level treatment of selected advanced topics in international macroeconomics determined partly by the interests of class participants. Sample topics are: international risk sharing; trade-macro linkages; sovereign debt and default; the macroeconomics of innovation; and emerging market business cycles. The class will involve presenting and discussing current papers, and writing referee reports. After taking this course, students will be expected to develop a critical and creative approach to reading and evaluating the recent literature in international macroeconomics for the purpose of improving one's own research.
