|Abstract: ||In International Economics you will learn about the application of economic principles in the analysis and interpretation of economic interdependence among nations. Specifically, we will cover the theoretical models of international trade, before moving to specific models of the impact of trade on income distribution and the resulting trade policy (tariffs, export subsidies, quotas). Furthermore, we will analyze factor movements, foreign direct investment and migration, and the resulting welfare and policy implications. Finally, we will consider the implications of trade for economic growth and development.
