We need to fully utilize the financial system for efficient resource allocation and, on the other hand, we need to avoid the negative impact of the fluctuations of the financial market. This course focuses on the organizational structure of the financial system and discusses the theoretic foundation of major financial institutions and financial regulations in addition to related practical issues. The development of the Chinese financial system will also be discussed. (TU #30510962)
