SWINBURNE UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY FACULTY OF BUSINESS AND ENTERPRISE Economics GUIDE TO THE EXAM IN HBE333/N Semester 2, 2012 The exam comprises 3 sections. SECTION A (Questions 1-5) You must do 5 questions worth 1% each. There are 3 multiplndchoice and 2 fill in the empty lines. The first 4 are very like the multiple choice in the 2 test in terms of content. (Reference: My typed lecture notes, i.e. pp. 237 -256 of the Green Book of Readings will do, and/or Jackson & McIver if you wish). The fifth one concerns bank reserves and the money supply. (Jackson and McIver). It is not difficult. (You will probably know the answer without any preparation.) SECTION B (Questions 6-12) You must do 3 questions from a choice of 7. Each one is worth 5%. • Question 6 is about the Grameen Bank. It is quite straight forward. Look up the internet to find out about it (www.grameen.com) OR search the New Internationalist site (or hard copy in library) i.e. back issues OR check a recent encyclopaedia • Question 7 is on Monetarists versus Keynesians (Ref. my typed lecture notes, i.e. pages 237 - 256 on Macro & Monetary Theory, or, for more detail: J. & McI. Ch. 13) • Question 8 is drawn from “Taming the banks” by Kenneth Davidson. (See p.423 in Green Book of readings.) • Question 9 is on the advantages and disadvantages of financial intermediation and disintermediation, e.g. see pages 46– 47 in the Green Book of readings (from D. Juttner pp. 24-25; and J. & Mc.) • Question 10: prudential supervision versus laissez-faire. (You can compare with the 1890s, i.e. Canon’s article on “The First Banking Scandals” – See pp 177 – 185 in the Green Book.) • Question 11: whyrdre protesters critical of the IMF and World Bank’s lending policies to the 3 world. (Ref. “Why the IMF, World Bank must be shut down” p.370 - 371; and “IMF – World Bank: the facts” pp 372 – 375; “Redesigning the Global Economy”, on pp 391 – 394, and pp 395 – 400 in the Green Book). • Question 12: why some political economists and even Keynesians might be critical of the Campbell & Wallis reports. N.B. You cannot do this  question (12) and Question 13  . Nor 17 and 18. SECTION C (Questions 13-19) You must do 2 questions from a choice of seven. Each is worth 20%. • Question 13: a reasoned criticism of financial deregulation following the Campbell, Martin & Wallis Reports. (You can criticise the reports, or the way deregulation has happened in practice and is now, or both.) See “NB” above. Refs. Lectures , and various hand outs. (eg. Articles by Patricia Ranald, pp.215-8 and Steve Keen , p.137- 144 in the Green Book, or ones by Kenneth Davidson.) • Question 14: the situation prior to deregulation. Describe the main regulations and their purpose. Include NBFIs and the problem with the effectiveness of monetary policy at that time. Refs. Various hand outs: eg. The two long ones by T. J. Valentine, Australian Banking in Transition, p.359-69 in Green Book and The Campbell Report
