This course examines the current economic situation and potential policy lessons. The course is in three modules. The first is a brief history of financial panics. The course then focuses on the origins of the current situation with specific attention to changes in the housing markets including the development of securitization and accompanying financial innovations. It concludes with an analysis of some of the recent policy responses and their impact on the macro economy. There will be a number of guest lectures by experts either currently or recently involved in developing policy approaches for the financial crises.
