INAF U8675x and y Emerging Capital Markets: Theory & Practice 3 pts. Prerequisites: SIPA U6401, PEPM U6102 or EMPA U8216 The goal of this course is to teach students about the historical relationships between financial risk, capital structure and legal and policy issues in emerging markets. Our strategy will be to develop a model of how and why international capital flows to emerging market countries and to use the model to examine various topics in the history of international financing from the 1820's to the present. Students will identify patterns in investor and borrower behavior, evaluate sovereign capital structures, and analyze sovereign defaults, including the debt negotiation process during the various debt crises of the past 175 years. We will focus primarily on Latin America, emerging Asia, and Russia, although the lessons will be generalized to cover all emerging market countries. SIPA: MIA- Interstate Relations. SIPA: EPD.
