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.
