Fall 2021 not offered
This course examines the causes and consequences of cross-border flows of goods and services. We will investigate various theories of international trade and discuss the empirical validity of their predictions. Particular emphasis will also be placed on the motives for countries to restrict or regulate trade and the institutional arrangements governing the world trading system. Moreover, we will discuss how trade between countries can shape economic development. Over the course of the semester, we will also address numerous controversial issues with regard to international trade. Examples include the impact of trade on the environment, labor standards, wages, jobs, and inequality.
