Money and Banking

Money and Banking

George Mason University — ECON 310 — Fall 2015

The goal of this class is to give you an appreciation of the problems solved by the institutions of money, banking, and financial markets, and the tools with which to interpret monetary events. The course involves both history and theory. By the end of the class, you should be able to understand monetary current events and evaluate “political” proposals through the lens of economic theory.

The course is broadly structured into six units:

  1. The History and Evolution of Money and Banking
  2. Monetary Theory and the Pyramid of Credit
  3. The Operation of Competitive Banking
  4. The Operation of Central Banking
  5. Crises and Panics: Prevention and Response
  6. Monetary Reform

Evalutation 3.73/5
