international finance

This is the page for Caroline Bradley’s International Finance Class at the University of Miami. This class was last offered as a seminar in Spring 2015. The Spring 2019 class is a regular 3 credit class. Assessment is by means of a paper (on a topic which must be approved by me early in the semester) or a take-home final exam.

The Spring 2019 plan is to focus on the following 5 topics: Litigation Issues in International Financial Transactions; Issues in Transnational Financial Regulation; Compliance and International Finance: Sanctions, Money Laundering, Libor; Fintech; and Climate Change: Financial Stability and Climate Finance.

We will begin with some introductory, scene-setting material. Classes are in Room F402 on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11 am to 12.20 pm.

Week 1: January 14-18
For the first class on Monday January 14, please read the first 26 pages of International Finance Materials Chapter 1: Introduction.

For class on Wednesday January 16 please read to page 49.

As we consider the course materials we will also think about some current developments relating to international finance. For example, at the beginning of 2019 there are some questions about financial stability (stock markets have encountered recent volatility; commentators raise questions about the eurozone; Brexit) and about the future direction of international financial institutions (Jim Yong Kim announced he was stepping down from leadership of the World Bank).

Here are the Class Policies.
