Imperialism, adverse terms of trade for the third world, structural adjustment, the oil syndrome, neo-mercantilism of the Asian Tigers -- all topics illuminated by this tutorial. Building on Mun, Ricardo and Ohlin from the Sophomore year we proceed from comparative advantage to the balance of payments and macroeconomic adjustment. Methodologically, this tutorial shifts from deductive critical analysis of last year to empirical inference, relating theory to evidence as a mode of discovering probable truth ¿ the technique of research papers and Honors theses.
