Tuesday, September 25, 2012

This seminar will examine the legal and institutional structure of the current global monetary system, with a particular emphasis on the economic freedoms afforded to nations such as the U.S., U.K., Japan, Canada and Australia that use a non-convertible fiat currency with a floating exchange rate. Questions to be addressed include:

How does a fiat currency with a floating exchange rate differ from other types of currencies?

How does government spending and taxation work?

Why is accounting important for understanding the economy?

How can monetarily sovereign nations address their current economic problems?
