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 8: March 2-6 We will not meet as a group this week. Our next meeting will be on Tuesday April 7 on that day and the following Thursdays and Tuesdays until the end of the semester we will meet to hear and discuss presentations of the papers. Here is the draft presentation schedule as of February 11, 2015.
Between now and April 7 I am happy to review your draft outlines and papers (and sections of papers) as you develop them. And I am also available to help with any questions you have as you work on the papers either by email or in person. Tuesdays and Thursdays 9-11 will work for me, but other times are possible also. If you want to meet in person it is best to schedule an appointment by email.
