The goal of the course is to make students familiar with the basic theories and empirical findings in modern international trade. This should enable them to understand and analyze phenomena related to the globalized economy as well as policy issues.

We will discuss the most important workhorse models of international trade, such as the Armingotn model (and the gravity equation), Ricardian model (country-sector productivity differences), the Heckscher-Ohlin model (international differences in factor endowments), the Krugman model of intra-industry trade (increasing returns and imperfect competition) and the Melitz model (firm heterogeneity). We will also cover topics on multinationals, trade policy and economic geography.
