|Certificates: International Relations|
How does international economic integration affect the economies of individuals and countries? Is globalization beneficial or detrimental to the world's poor? What countries are more likely to gain from trade? How are those gains distributed within countries? Why are some countries recurrently buffeted by currency and financial crises? Should economic policy be used to reduce a country's exposure to international instability? This course uses the tools of international trade theory and open-economy macroeconomics to understand the answers to these questions. The basics of international trade and finance are presented with a nontechnical orientation and an emphasis on understanding the recent experience of economies across the globe.
