Many additional measures are also needed. All are available under Files/Resources/Readings on Canvas and are linked in this program. Many readings are also free for the public on the Internet, by links included in this school program. Some readings are available on subscription sites, including those that have subscribed to U of M (z.B JSTOR, Proquest). And some are only available on Canvas. Because of the speed at which problems develop, the measures selected in advance can never cover all the latest developments. So we`ll spend every week talking about the latest trade and trade policy news. You should follow the latest editions of international trade policy by reading daily magazines such as the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times or the Financial Times or weekly publications such as Business Week or The Economist. Student subscriptions for these publications are available at discounted prices. I also post links to relevant messages on my personal website. We will spend some time each week discussing the news. PODCASTS Over the past two years, the Peterson Institute for International Economics has presented weekly podcasts, trade conferences, most of them with Soumaya Keynes of The Economist and PIIE scientist Chad Bown, who discuss international trade policy issues. I include links to a number of these appropriate points in the program with the optional View option.
I have not heard from everyone myself, but I have heard enough to know that they are valuable when you can take the time to listen to them. QUESTIONS ON THE READINGS The focus is mainly on trade policy. They learn about trade policy, how it is used by the United States and other countries, and how its use is limited by international agreements. Most importantly, you learn how to use economic modeling to understand the impact of trade policy and quantify these effects. Along the way, you`ll learn more about the institutions of the global economy, especially those related to trade. And you`ll learn a little bit about economic theories about why nations trade, why economists say profits come from trade, and why there are also trade losers. Over the past two years, the Peterson Institute for International Economics has offered weekly trade talks, most of which discuss Soumaya Keynes from The Economist and PIIE-scientist Chad Bown on international trade policy issues. I include links to a number of these appropriate points in the program with the optional View option.
I have not heard from everyone myself, but I have heard enough to know that they are valuable when you can take the time to listen to them. The last issue, the 11th, was released in 2018. I list the numbers of pages in the list below, plus the pages of the previous 10th edition in its purely trade version, if you find a copy instead. The purely commercial version excludes the chapters on exchange rates and balance of payments, which I also assign, so I will make them available on Canvas.
