ECON 364 Macro of Emerging Market Economies

This seminar will explore issues relating to the theory and practice of macroeconomic stabilization and adjustment in emerging market / developing countries. Specifically we will discuss a variety of policy measures that governments and policymakers in international organizations have pursued in an attempt to minimize fluctuations in international capital flows, real national output and income,to correct unsustainable balance-of-payments deficits and/or to correct high domestic inflation. An assessment of these policies within the context of emerging market economies will give students an appreciation of the inherent challenges.
