Diana Strassmann, Rice University

Course page from a Fall 2013 assignment which allocated students to improve and review Wikipedia articles, including "Food security", "Illegal drug trade" and "Socioeconomic impact of female education". The page sets out the activities the students were required to do during the course, including proposing a change, making change on Wikipedia and reviewing each other's contributions. The course was supported by Wikipedia volunteers and campus Wikipedians. A table at the foot of the page lists the affected articles.

This course page supports a course on international monetary economics as taught by Olivier Jeanne at Johns Hopkins University in 2010. It presents theory and applies it towards gaining an understanding of recent events and current policy issues. The theory presented in this course covers a broad range of topics including exchange rate determination, monetary and fiscal policy in an open economy (that is, and economy that trades goods and assets with the rest of the world), balance of payments crises, the choice of exchange rate systems, and international debt. These theoretical frameworks enable the discussion of topics such as the current global financial crisis, global financial imbalances, the Chinese exchange rate regime, and proposed changes in the international financial architecture. It includes a course syllabus, lectures notes / slides and exam papers. The site is no longer online, so the link is to the Web Archive's copy.
