This is a course on International Trade Theory, aimed at senior undergraduates in Economics. The goal of the course is to provide students with the tools to understand how people, firms and governments interact through markets across countries, with an emphasis on flows of goods and services, people, and capital. The course will be organized around the following main topics: (i) Trade patterns and the global economy, (ii) Basic theories of international trade, (iii) New Theories of International Trade, and (iv) Trade Policy and Other applications. We will emphasize the use of theory and empirical methods from economics to understand the real world: for each topic we will discuss evidence and learn models that help us understand the facts.
