Major attention will be given to banking and financial crises, their origins and resolution, looking both at the US and other countries. We look at financial structure, financial development and financial crises, with special emphasis on the recent subprime crisis. In addition, we will cover the economics of bank management, along with the effects of the behavior of individual financial institutions on the financial system as a whole and on the economy as a whole.
