First 2 Class Sessions CANCELED

For complicated reasons, the first class of the semester will be on 1/14 Wednesday.

The regular International Finance classes that would normally meet as the first two class sessions of the term (1/7 Wed and 1/12 Mon) will NOT meet.

My apologies -- as I realize this makes it hard for people to decide whether to stay in the course or not, I will have special office hours twice on Friday, 1/9, for anyone who wants to ask about the course. I will post readings to be done for the first class 1/14, Wed, and a FAQs memo explaining the course requirements and organization. Again, I'm very sorry for not being able to hold the first two class sessions, but look forward to seeing everyone on 1/14 Wed.
