This course is focused on advanced international macroeconomics with an emphasis on the issues associated with international financial flows. It contrasts benefits and potential challenges associated with these international financial flows. It starts with studying the intertemporal trade between economies and equilibrium current account determination with perfect financial markets. The implications of sudden stops in international lending or capital flight are then discussed. One lecture deals with the twin-deficit phenomenon and interpretation of the Feldstein-Horioka puzzle. The neo-classical growth model for a small open economy facing borrowing constraints is derived. The price level convergence is also studied using the Balassa-Samuelson effect. Attention is also paid to financial imperfections and their impact on international capital allocation. The second block of lectures starts with discussing the exchange rate regime choice, currency crises and the optimum currency area theory. The focus is then put on the inflation-targeting regime in small open economies, reaction of central banks to foreign shocks, discussion of exchange rate management under the inflation targeting, etc. The course assumes a prior good knowledge of closed-economy macroeconomics at the level of master studies.
