The SAFE Visitors Program organizes and cordially invites you to attend a 9-hour PhD-level mini-course on
Topics in international finance
by Dmitry Mukhin (LSE)
This course focuses on interactions between countries around the world via trade and financial linkages. Among the questions we are going to discuss are: What explains the dominant status of the dollar in the international trade and the global financial markets? What are the associated benefits and costs for the U.S.? Is the dollar likely to lose its dominant status in the future and which other currencies can replace it? What are the pros and cons of a single currency in Europe? Why do most countries in the world manage their exchange rates? What is the optimal monetary policy in an open economy and what is the role of capital controls and FX interventions?
