Financial Crises: Beginning to End
ECON 237
Fall 2021
Section: 01  

This course provides an introduction to the economics of financial crises. Using introductory economics we will examine banking, security, and currency crises in order to illuminate the role of financial crises more generally in the archetypical life cycle of financial systems. By the end of the course, students will be able to define what causes financial crises, how they lead to contractions in economic activity, why they reoccur, and what policy measures can be used to promote financial stability.
