International Trade BEA703

Hobart

Introduction

This unit provides you with an overview of a wide range of issues related to international trade and international economics. We investigate why nations trade, what they trade and who gains from this trade. We then analyse the motives for countries and organisations to restrict and regulate international trade, and study the impacts of such policies on economic welfare. The unit also covers international macroeconomics: including the balance of payments and the determination of exchange rates.
