Today, not only are all politics global, all of economics is international. To understand those interlinkages the William R. Rhodes Center for Finance and Economics seeks to understand how local politics, global economics, and international finance combine to produce the volatile and uncertain world that we all inhabit. Whether it’s the role government bonds play in the repo markets that finance much consumer credit; the emerging world of ‘fin-tech’ that has the potential to transform the entire structure of the industry; or the way that surpluses and deficits across the world have become objects of politics, our mission is to understand how the worlds of finance, economics, and politics are all intertwined. This site is currently under construction. A relaunch is scheduled for later in 2018.
