ECON 54 Financial Crises by Professor Caprio & Professor Montiel
This course is intended to expose students to analytical models of currency, banking, and sovereign debt crises, as well as to the interactions among them. Students will read background papers on the determinants, impacts, and resolution of crises of all three types, and then will examine a series of case studies, spanning crises from the South Seas bubble to the current Eurozone crises, with several developing-country crises in between.
