Macroeconomics and Finance: Perspectives from Asia

This module explores the link between economic growth, financial markets and policy in Asia, from a structural as well as cyclical perspective. The course draws on many analytical tools of macro and international economics covered in BMA5011, which is a pre-requisite. Major topics covered include: (1) The role of financial system and regulation in Asia’s economic development; (2) Asian financial crisis and its legacies; (3) The evolution of Asian exchange rate regimes and real exchange rate adjustment; and (4) Opportunities and policy challenges posed by globalization, regional integration and cross-border transmission of shocks.
