Content

The unit aims to develop an understanding of the international monetary systems and international financial markets, institutions and instruments. The unit introduces students to the complexities involved in cross-border transactions and undertakes an analysis of international parity conditions, foreign exchange markets, instruments and exchange rate systems. The breakdown in global financial markets and the resultant credit crisis has had significant and lasting impacts on the international money markets and Euro markets. The failure of financial institutions and the emerging debt crisis countries – the PIIGS – threaten the very viability of the European union in the wake of the global financial crisis. The causes and consequences of this breakdown in global financial markets is examined along with the issues of country risk, corporate governance issues, and foreign direct investment.
