This unit of study provides analytical and theoretical frameworks for understanding various problems and current issues in macroeconomics in the global economy. The unit builds on ECON5002, but at a more advanced and specialised level with its focus on international/open-economy aspects of macroeconomics. The first part of the unit deals with qualitative analysis, following this there is a focus on quantitative analysis using contemporary microfounded general equilibrium models. Topics to be covered include foreign exchange markets, interest parity, exchange rate determination and intervention, goods market and money market, the international monetary system and the role of central banks.
