Further information regarding the content of the exam:
The exam will require you to both answer general knowledge questions not requiring any calculus (e.g. “Why would central banks accept less liquid assets as collateral, compared to the collateral used in interbank repo markets?”) and questions requiring simple calculus, as those contained in the lecture notes. We will go through all types of questions which require simple calculus in the second block of lectures, and questions in the exam will be variants of those answered in the lecture. There are relatively few such types of questions, so that you will be able to prepare for them within the week between the second lecture block and the exam. Please already note that questions requiring calculating through the continuous asset liquidity case of the bank run model will not be part of the exam.
