Content

This unit is about the gains from trade and the reasons why nations may be reluctant to pursue free trade. It covers topics such as the gravity model of trade, trade theories, trade policies, GATT/WTO and trade-related international finance. 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.
