Transcript Title: FINANCIAL CRISIS 
UC QTR Units - Division: 4.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course focuses on why the financial crises have (repeatedly) occurred, how costly they are to the domestic and global economy, how different countries at different historical episodes dealt with them with common or their own unique politico-economic means and measures, and what is the implication for the financial crises to become globally contagious and in particular its ramifications for the Chinese economy that has been assumed immunity until most recently. The course examines a brief historical overview of the financial crises spanning in the last four centuries. Starting from the Tulip mania of 1636, the course explores a number of crises and discusses bailouts, sovereign debts, bankruptcies, hyperinflation, trade imbalance, and global recessions. The course then emphasizes relevant analytical tools, theoretical models, and empirical regularities that contemporary economists developed to tie together those common historical elements and to conceptualize each crisis with a thorough understanding of its nature and causes. Texts: Charles P. Kindleberger and Robert Z. Aliber, MANIAS, PANICS AND CRASHES: A HISTORY OF FINANCIAL CRISES; Reinhardt, Carmen, and Kenneth Rogoff, THIS TIME IS DIFFERENT: EIGHT CENTURIES OF FINANCIAL FOLLY.
