The course deals with theories of the economy’s capital structure and international financial flows. The capital structure links micro-level entrepreneurship with macro-level economic growth.
Financial, monetary and exchange policy is seen from the perspective of economic development in a globalised world, where the links between the financial system and the real economy are emphasised. There is a special focus on the effect of nominal prices for economic calculations. The theoretical analysis will be applied to Baltic and Central Asian transition economies.
