IPMG 8602 / IMGT 8602 - FinanclIssChina-GlobalContext      

China’s rise has put China’s financial issues at the center of global economic and financial stability. This course provides an up-to-date evaluation on China’s currency policy, foreign exchange regime, banking structure and other financial issues in the global context. The course begins with an overview of China’s financial system, followed by discussions on how variation in China’s financial reforms can account for differences in patterns of global business and world economic development. Then the course turns to a case analysis of China’s RMB exchange rate and its effects on the global financial order and world/American economy. During simulations, students will take on various roles in contemporary debates/issues, including RMB appreciation, SME financing, capital controls, foreign debts, and the future global financial regime.

IPSG 8573 / IPOL 8573 - US-China Trade Relations      

This course offers an economic approach for addressing the US-China trade related issues in an effort to prepare MIIS students for the complex realities of US-China trade and commercial diplomacy. Given the fact that China may overtake the U.S. to become the world’s largest economy in the near future, the practical aim of this course is to prepare MIIS students for navigating the future US-China political and economic environment. This is critical as tensions within their roles as future government and business leaders are sure to be present. As a consequence, students will develop a better understanding of how US-China trade and economic diplomacy has been built based on increasing interdependence of the two large economies, growing bilateral trade, engaging American strategy, the rising power of China and their collective impacts on overall US-China relations.
