This is the page for Caroline Bradley’s International Finance Class at the University of Miami. In Spring 2015 the class will be taught as a seminar. We will meet twice each week for the first 5 weeks of the semester to discuss the course readings, then not meet as a group to allow you to work on your papers, then meet again to discuss drafts. Materials for the seminar will focus on three sets of issues: Problems in Sovereign Debt, Cross Border Financial Regulation (Shadow Banking, Too Big to Fail, Bank Resolution), and Compliance (Benchmarks (e.g. Libor), Moneylaundering, Asset Freezes). I will provide a list of possible paper topics (you are not required to select a topic from the list although I do need to approve your paper topic).
WEEK 3: January 26-30
On Tuesday we will begin by discussing IMF, Strengthening the Contractual Framework to Address Collective Action Problems in Sovereign Debt Restructuring (October 2014). Please also read ICMA Standard CACs (August 2014) and ICMA Standard Pari Passu Provision (August 2014).
