Description: 

The seminar deals with changes and new developments in the theoretical and empirical literature on monetary policy. Topics
covered through lectures and seminar papers include the following: the appropriate mandates and objective function of central
banks, the relationship between monetary policy and financial supervision, the role of the exchange rates, the functioning of
monetary policy in a monetary union, the importance of fiscal dominance, quantitative easing during financial crises, the role
of communication of objectives and policies, the functioning of central bank committees, transparency and independence and
accountability, global coordination of monetary policy, the international role of the euro and the US dollar.
The course will first start with a series of lectures addressing these various issues. The seminar participants are then asked to
prepare a seminar paper on one of the issues, which then have to be presented and discussed towards the end of the semester.
To allow an intensive dialogue among the students, the seminar is organized in block classes. Many topics are closely related
to each other.

The lectures will take place on 26 April and 3 and 8 May. The seminar presentations will take place on 7 and 11 July.
