The course aims to present the institutional and economic forces affecting the financial markets and the firm at a global level. Financial markets include money markets (short-term debt) and capital markets (long-term debt and equities). Money markets provide companies and governments with liquidity, and the capital markets provide the same entities with long-term capital. Typical financial institutions are commercial banks, investment banks, thrifts, insurance companies, and credit unions.
