The role of international capital markets in economic growth and development is studied. The integration of international capital markets creates international links between national price levels, national interest rates and national stock markets. The market for foreign exchange is an important part of such links. Appropriate economic policies in a financially interdependent world are considered. The course combines economic theory and a review of significant empirical work.
