Over the last three decades, there has been a greater interdependence between economies than ever before due to fragmentation and outsourcing of production processes, increasing mobility of people, international capital flows, and flexible exchange rate regimes. International Economicsinitiates students to these changes in the global economic scenario by combining current research and new perspectives with conventional theoretical wisdom.Complementing trade theories with relevant trade empirics, the book analyses a wide range of policy issues in the present wave of globalization relating to: DT product standards and regulationsDT impact of environment on tradeDT labour and quality standardsDT bilateralism, regionalism, and multilateralism, with a focus on debates at the WTODT the growing expansion of service exportsDT the linkages between trade and inclusive growthUnlike most textbooks on the subject that begin with model-specific discussions, this book takes a distinctively different approach. It first introduces the basic principles underlying international exchange, trade, and exchange rate policies, and then goes on to offer alternative theoreticalexplanations for these principles by using specific models of trade. Accessible and up-to-date, the book offers handy study aids in the form of clearly defined summary concepts, keywords, case studies, problem-solving exercises, and suggested reading for students and teachers of internationaleconomics.
Rajat Acharyya is Professor in the Department of Economics at Jadavpur University, Kolkata.
