  • FNCE101 - Monetary Economics and the Global Economy

    This is an intermediate-level course in macroeconomics and the global economy, including topics in monetary and international economics.

The course analyzes the determinants and behavior of employment, production, demand and profits; inflation, interest rates, asset prices, and wages; exchange rates and international flows of goods and assets; including the interaction of the real economy with monetary policy and the financial system. The analysis is applied to current events, both in the US and abroad. During the spring semester there are honors sections of FNCE 101 offered. The seats in the honors sections are awarded through an application process. Please go to for additional information.
