This textbook is suitable for these courses: A one-semester trade/finance course
This textbook is suitable for 2 and 4 year institutions.
Both International Finance and International Trade sections of the course begin with an overview of recent data from the real world. This sets the stage for the theory that comes afterwards.
Models are the way economists describe and understand the world. This text will walk though basic economic models to explain the relevance to the real world.
The text spends considerable space to clear up popular misconceptions about the international economy. This includes an extensive discussion of how to understand trade deficits and a presentation of both positive and negative aspects of free trade.
In the Finance section the text offers a more thorough explanation of trade deficits and surpluses and offers tools for understanding them better.
It also provides a clear explanation of the pros and cons of fixed and floating exchange rate systems.
In the trade section the text uses an Edgeworth box approach to explain the motivation and effects of trade.
The text introduces the basic set of ethics necessary for pure exchange.
