Conoscenze e abilità da conseguire

Monetary policy has the ability to shape all economic interactions in a way that no other policy does. However, the recent experience of the Great Recession has raised questions in monetary policy surrounding the limits to this power. At the same time, the development of financial markets and institutions have questioned the definition of “money” and inspired new methods and policies to address these challenges. Within the area of contemporary monetary economics and monetary policy, students will learn the transmission mechanism of monetary policy in a market based economy, the role played by market liquidity and sovereign debt, the policy tools of quantitative and qualitative easing, and will acquire a deep understanding of the policy issues in the Euro Area.
