For an introductory International Economics course.
A principles-level introduction to international economics that is accessible to all majors.
International Economics uses a rich array of case studies to illuminate economic institutions and policies as well as recent developments in the global economy—without students having to rely on a prerequisite knowledge of higher-level math. Further, the text’s flexible approach—with self-contained chapters and comprehensive coverage—allows instructors to adapt the text easily to a wide range of syllabi.
The sixth edition preserves the organization and coverage of the fifth edition and adds a number of updates and enhancements. All tables and graphs have been updated and every chapter begins with a list of student learning outcomes. Chapter 13, The United States in the World Economy, is heavily revised and refocused towards U.S. international economic relations, including NAFTA, but adds material on other trade agreements, including a new case study on preferential agreements such as the African Growth and Opportunity Act.
