This course concerns the issues of International Trade which is a branch of International Economics, for undergraduate level. Knowledge of microeconomics and macroeconomics at intermediate level are prerequisites. Topics covered include basic reasons for trade such as comparative advantage, factor endowments, how nations trade, the gains from trade and distribution effects of tariffs. International Trade is an especially useful subject to think in a broad spectrum, to find and make use of theories and data for analyzing global issues, to recognize and clearly define an issue requiring analysis or a problem requiring a solution, and it develops our capacities to analyze both macro and micro economics issues in a general equilibrium and open economy framework. To put what is learned to work, we will use theory to understand the world economy. To do so, we will have discussion sessions on selected current international topics on a regular basis. Thus, I will calculate the semester grade by weighting each two hours examination 30%, the final examination 30%, and class presentation 10%. Additionally, I will raise your semester numerical score if you make an excellent contribution to class.

Class Presentation:

Each student will be expected to make a class presentation once during the semester on one of the International Trade topics. You can determine the approximate timing of the presentation by seeing where that topic fits into the schedule of required reading assignments.
