The financial crisis of 2007-8 has already revolutionized institutions, markets, and regulation. Wright's Money and Banking V 2.0 captures those revolutionary changes and packages them in a way that engages undergraduates enrolled in Money and Banking and Financial Institutions and Markets courses.
Minimal mathematics, accessible language, and a student-oriented tone ease readers into complex subjects like money, interest rates, banking, asymmetric information, financial crises and regulation, monetary policy, monetary theory, and other standard topics. Numerous short cases, called "Stop and Think" boxes, promote internalization over memorization. Exercise drills ensure basic skills competency where appropriate. Short, snappy sections that begin with a framing question enhance readability and encourage assignment completion.
This course is designed to provide you with a thorough understanding of the importance of money, banking, and financial markets of a developed economy. Money, financial institutions, and financial markets have emerged as instruments of payments for the services of factors of production, such as labor and capital. The use of money facilitates business in a market by acting as a common medium of exchange. Of course, as that market expands and develops on a national and international level, the importance of money, banking, and other financial markets expands to accommodate innumerable exchanges. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: Identify the implications, risks, and opportunities of global markets; Acquire and demonstrate analytical and problem solving skills within money, banking, and financial market disciplines; Assess how monetary activities affect an economy; Understand the structure of financial markets and their regulations; Understand the nature and functions of money; Identify the behavior of the stock market; Assess the implications of responses in the form of both monetary and fiscal policy; Understand the basic purposes of the monetary and financial systems; Identify the markets for stocks, bonds, derivatives, and currencies; Interpret the roles of banks and other financial intermediaries; Analyze how the Fed affects the economy; Identify how current money is traded for future money; Understand that the amount of money to be transferred in the future is uncertain; Understand that one party to the transaction can make a decision at a later time that will affect subsequent transfers of money; Understand how knowledge of the future can reduce the uncertainty associated with future monetary value; Assess how a financial crisis happens and how policy makers should respond.
