International monetary policy

This seminar focuses on recent advances in monetary theory and monetary policy. The aim of the course is that students understand how a central bank operates and that they can participate in public debates on monetary policy issues. The focus will lie on the operation of the European Central Bank (ECB), although the conduct of monetary policy by other central banks such as the US Federal Reserve Bank, the Bank of England or Japan will also be discussed occasionally.

This course is for 2nd year MIA and MPP students only.
