International economics: the monetary economy

Parte di

Percorso in International Economics


The topics covered by the course are at the very heart of today’s economic and political events. We aim at providing sound and specific tools for the analysis of international monetary economics and explore the most up to date evidence on and interpretation of the current and most relevant international phenomena. Beyond these general goals we aim at presenting and analysing in a critical manner the position of our country, Italy, in the rapidly changing world economy. 

The course focuses on the functioning of an international monetary system. It has three core parts : 

  1. the first is meant to provide an historical and analytical perspective of different exchange rate regimes to highlight their pros and cons. 
  2. A second part of the course will concern the specific analysis of the comparison of exchange rate regimes and macroeconomic policies characterising the most recent 2008 crisis and the ‘29 one. 
  3. Finally, the course will provide a focus on the functioning of the Eurosystem and of the position of Italy within this system.

The main value added of the course is having instructors whose research field overlaps with the topics that they will cover.

Gli argomenti del corso sono al centro degli eventi economici e politici di oggi. Il corso “International Economics: the Monetary Economy” si prefigge di fornire specifici strumenti per l’analisi dell’economia monetaria internazionale ed esplorare la più aggiornata evidenza e l’interpretazione dei fenomeni attuali e più rilevanti dell’economia monetaria internazionale. Al di là di questi obiettivi generali si propone di presentare ed analizzare in modo critico la posizione del nostro paese, l’Italia, nell’economia mondiale in rapida evoluzione.Il corso si focalizza sul funzionamento del sistema monetario internazionale. Ha tre parti fondamentali: (1) La prima parte intende fornire una prospettiva storica ed analitica dei diversi regimi di cambio per evidenziare i loro pro e contro. (2) La seconda parte riguarda l’analisi specifica del confronto dei regimi di cambio e delle politiche macroeconomiche che caratterizzano la crisi più recente del 2008 e quella del ‘29. (3) Infine, il corso si concentrerà sul funzionamento dell’Eurosistema e sulla posizione dell’Italia all’interno di questo sistema.Il valore aggiunto principale del corso è avere docenti il cui campo di ricerca si sovrappone con gli argomenti affrontati.

The course will provide participants with sound and specific tools for the analysis of international monetary economics and explore the most up to date evidence on and interpretation of the current and most relevant international phenomena.
