Course details

The curriculum will consist of a large part of Carl. E. Walsh (2010): Monetary Theory and Policy. Third Edition, The MIT Press. Buy it! Walsh's own page with additional material (including a list of typos) is here.

We will also use a few notes and articles, which will be announced as we go along.

Assessment: Written 3-hour exam; closed book.
Date and time: June 12, 14.00 - 17.00.

The teaching language is English.

Old exam sets (link working)

Go here (opens new window) for the collection of previous exam sets and suggested solutions. Note that the exam in 2006 was "open book" and therefore slightly harder than the earlier exams. Hence, the exams in 2003-5, 2006-14 are the most representative for the exam of this course. Note, however, that all these exams, except the 2010-2014 ones, were 4-hour exams. This year we again have a three-hour exam. Note that Walsh's book from 2010 an onwards is a newer version, and that the course have changed over time - so the sets get less and less representative going back in time. I noted that the 2003 exam is a weird version of the set. So here it is.
