This course introduces students to the role of taxation in the design of financial products and the operation of financial markets. We will cover the basic operating rules for common financial instruments (e.g., debt, equity, options, and future/forward contracts), and we will consider the interplay among market needs, tax operating rules, and common law principles that inform the design of financial instruments.
This course will have 7 class meetings. To allow for a makeup class because of unforeseen circumstances this course has an automatic make-up class scheduled for the 8th week. Students must be able to attend all 8 scheduled meetings to earn credit.
Attendance at the first two weeks of class sessions is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present during the first two weeks of class (without prior permission of the instructor) may be dropped without notice. The instructor can continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to risk being dropped without notice.
