The shift to online teaching is gaining momentum. Although I miss the personal interaction, some of the innovations are very positive. One of my favorites is the Panopto format presentation.
The samples you will find below are based on current events. Initially, I used these during the early weeks of the COVID-19 lockdown to help the students in my European Financial Markets class make the connection between what we read in the literature and discuss in seminar, and what is happening in the wider world. My goal is to provide a quick (15-20 minute) talk each week to dig a little deeper into specific issues that are rising in importance.
Given the nature of the class, many of these presentations focus on central banking in the euro area. I will teach different classes next semester and so that emphasis is likely to shift (and I will update this page accordingly).
The list is in reverse chronological order, with the most recent presentations on top.
The 4 June European Central Bank press conference and the German fiscal package.
