Venue I: 
HU Berlin, Dorotheenstr. 1, Room 405
Description: 

The course will introduce students to current research topics in financial intermediation, via reading, presenting, and discussing papers together. We will start with more “classic” topics such as bank runs (e.g. Diamond and Dybvig 1983, Allen and Gale 1998, Morris and Shin 1998) and techniques for estimating the effect of bank balance sheet shocks on credit supply (Khwaja and Mian 2008). Other topics in the area of financial intermediation will be chosen according to the specific interests of seminar participants. Participants will learn about the literature and thereby be better able to find their own research topics that contribute to said literature.
