Spring 2016 not offered
|Certificates: International Relations|
This class examines the economic interactions between countries in the world economy. In particular, this course analyzes the exchange of goods and services (international trade) and borrowing and lending between countries. The first part of the class will focus on explaining trade patterns between countries and the gains and losses associated with international trade. Trade policies such as tariffs and the institutional arrangements governing them (e.g., the World Trade Organization) will also be analyzed. The second part of the course will cover international finance topics including the balance of payments, exchange rates, and the history of the international monetary system. We will also discuss how international linkages between countries affect economic growth at different development stages.
Economics majors who want to be exposed to a more advanced treatment of international trade and international finance topics are encouraged to take ECON 371 and/or ECON 331.
