Section: A

CRN: 17308

Credits: 3

This course seeks to integrate two separate disciplines – money, and finance, and macroeconomics. It builds on the theories of 19th and 20th century economists whose activity in financial markets led to monetary theories of the cycle that rejected the quantity theory of money. An aspect of this approach was a fiscal basis for finance which has re-emerged recently in modern monetary theory. It also seeks to explain how Fisher and Keynes, whose active market participation produced a common monetary framework of analysis that provided the basis for modern financial practices, nonetheless produced diametrically opposed monetary and macroeconomic theories. It thus provides support for Minsky’s insistence that Post Keynesian economics eschew separation of real and monetary analysis.
