International Economics, the best-selling textbook in the field, is written by two of the world's preeminent economists. Both the real trade portion of the book and the monetary portion are divided into a core of chapters focused on theory, followed by chapters applying the theory major policy questions, past and current. International Economics presents an integrated treatment of Ricardian, specific factors, factor endowments, and imperfect competition models of trade, along with in-depth analysis of empirical evidence. It covers the effects and causes of trade policy, including strategic trade policy, focusing on the income-distribution effects of trade. The book provides a unified model of open-economy macroeconomics based on an asset-market approach to exchange rate determination with a central role for expectations. The new edition contains updated coverage of the euro and of the causes and likely effects of economic and monetary union (EMU) in Europe. It also features an up-to-date treatment of developing countries' experiences in an all-new Chapter 22. The chapter focuses on long-run income convergence, disinflation and exchange rate regimes, recent crises in Latin America, Russia, and Asia, and reform of the international financial “architecture.”
