International Finance

This course explores the international financial architecture. It examines international banking and securities regulation, global capital rules and cross-border issues in supervision and regulation. It analyzes U.S. rules for financial firms doing business in the United States, as well as rules governing the conduct of U.S. firms abroad. Particular attention will be paid to the extraterritorial aspects of the U.S. Dodd-Frank legislation, the evolution of global financial regulation under the Basel Committee on Banking Supervison and IOSCO, and the creation of the Financial Stability Board. We will explore the roles of the G-7/8, G-20, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund in global finance and its regulation, and develop an understanding of the intersection between financial regulation and global trade rules under the WTO. The course also looks at regulation of financial firms in other countries, including the UK, Europe and selected nations in the developing world, both as a comparative matter and to understand the extent to which national rules require global coordination.
