This is a graduate course in international Finance. This course is a required course in international trade for the graduate field of international economics. A good knowledge of undergraduate level of international finance will be very useful. However, the motivated student can learn easily as we progress. Participants are expected to have completed the core macroeconomics and microeconomics theory courses and a good background on econometrics. This course provides an overview of international financial economics, developing analytic tools and concepts that can be used to analyze world economic policy debates. In this course we cover topics such as the foreign exchange market and the balance of payments adjustment under different regime of exchange rate, exchange rate adjustments, international liquidity and money and capital flows, international monetary system, recent developments in exchange rate analysis and some current international policy issues.
Thus, I will calculate the semester grade by weighting each two hours examination 20%, the final examination 30%, and class presentation (see below) 30%. Additionally, I will raise your semester numerical score if you make an excellent contribution to class.

Class Presentation:

Each student will be expected to make a class presentation once during the semester on one of the following topics. You can determine the approximate timing of the presentation by seeing where that topic fits into the schedule of required reading assignments.

1/ Is the Real Exchange Rate Approximately Constant?

2/ The Relation between Devaluation and the Trade Balance.

3/ Does the Real Exchange Rate Follow a Random Walk, or Regress to PPP?

4/ Foreign Investment and International Capital Flow.

5/ Does Real Exchange Rate Variability Arise from Nominal Exchange Rate Variability and Sticky Goods Prices?

6/ The Relation Between Purchasing Power Parity and Non-Traded goods.

7/ An Investigation about Devaluation in Developing Countries with Non-Traded Goods.

8/ The Mundell-Fleming Model of Monetary and Fiscal Policy with International Capital Mobility.

9/ Fixed vs. Floating Exchange Rate Regimes.

10/ Monetary Models of Exchange Rate Determination.

11/ Forward Exchange Rate Bias and the Exchange Risk Premium.

12/ The Exchange Rate Premium and Optimal Portfolio Diversification.

13/ Tests of Rational Expectations in the Forward Exchange Market.

14/ Others.
