This unit is about the gains from trade and the reasons why nations may be reluctant to pursue free trade. It includes discussion about trade policies, including free trade agreements. The theoretical content of the unit assumes knowledge of the tools of intermediate microeconomics as developed in MAE201, Competition and Industry. A few new analytical techniques will be learned. However, the unit is primarily of value in providing further practice in applied economic analysis, in the sense of using conceptual tools to analyse issues of trade, protectionism and globalisation being debated in the world economy.
