Synopsis:

International finance is often identified with open-economy because it deals with the monetary and macroeconomic relations between countries. Our field deals with the problems deriving from balance of payments disequilibria in a monetary economy, and in particular with the automatic adjustment mechanism and the adjustment policies concerning the balance of payments, with the various exchange-rate regimes and exchange-rate determination, with international financial markets and the problems of the international monetary systems such as currency crises, debts problems, international policy coordination, with international monetary integration such as the European Monetary Union. We deal with flow of imports of consumption commodities, showing the importance of the saving-investment decision taken by optimizing agents in the determination of the international flows of commodities and capital. We show the key problems of the international monetary systems, from debt problems to international policy coordination.
