Towards a model of speculation in the foreign exchange market

  • Rob Hayward

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


The recent slowdown in global economic activity has shown that macroeconomic models without a well-structured representation of the financial sector will fail to provide understanding of the way that disruptions in credit markets, capital markets and banking can affect the rest of the economy. An investigation of foreign exchange speculation is used to get a better knowledge of the interaction between the financial sector and the economy as a step towards improving macroeconomic models and policy.
