Editorial Reviews

Review

'The authors present an innovative mix of theory, stylized facts, application of the theory to current and historical examples, and discussion of recent empirical research. No other textbook has this mix that I find tremendously appealing.' -Maria Muniagurria, University of Wisconsin, USA 'The addition of the gains from financial globalization is quite attractive, as are the chapters covering the winners and losers from trade and outsourcing. These three chapters make this book very topical and I think particularly interesting to students.' - Diane Flaherty, University of Massachusetts, USA 'The authors have carefully selected several very interesting and relevant case studies which provide an opportunity to motivate and apply the tools explained through the text. It is very difficult to teach students how to think like an economist. It requires time and discipline. But this text makes an important contribution in that direction.' - Ricardo A. Lopez, Indiana University, USA --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
This book covers several models of international trade: The Ricardian Model, Heckscher-Ohlin model, Specific Factors model, and The Gravity Model (briefly). It also examines the effects of limited competition, tariffs, quotas, and subsidies. Overall, the content is very well explained and could easily replace a professor who is only teaching topics from the book.

The major drawbacks of this book are the problem sets. Many questions are convoluted and ambiguous. My other qualm with the problems is they typically refer back to both a previous question and a previous illustration in the text(i.e. the illustrations have no page reference, only a designation such as'8-4'to help guide you). Perhaps they will work on improving the problem sets in future additions. I hope so, because they were a pain in my first edition.

Dear textbook writers/editors/publishers: Please immediately cease and desist from putting explanations of graphs on the page preceding or following the graph itself. Having to flip between an explanation and the graph is irritating and bothersome and distracts me from the text. Also, please explain your equations, how you manipulated them and why you did so.

Other than that, this book is well-written, generally fairly clear and interesting, with plenty of relevant real-life content. The practice exercises at the end of the book tend to be problem or graph based, and don't really help you understand the concepts you just read. I would read a chapter and understand it very well and then be completely confused on some of the practice problems. The organization of the book is a little weird in that it constantly tries to outline exactly where the chapter is going, and the way they do it just inexplicably leaves you feeling less organized than you were before.

I bought this just to dig in a little deeper with finance and investing, and it has turned out to be instrumental. Easy to follow, practical applications and it's not all "hype" or bs, it's actually great info. You won't regret this buy.

The numerical aspects of the presentation of the concepts and examples is insufficient. I wish the workbook could fill the void but it does not.
