Fall 2007 Course Outline ARE 201 (Half of semester) Introduction to Trade Theory and Policy Instructor: Larry Karp 207 Giannini, tel 642 7199, email [email protected] Office hours, Friday 9 - 10 and by appointment. Course Objective: Introduce students to the basic models and theorems of international trade. Develop intuition about trade, and especially general equilibrium models. Approach: I will emphasize geometric arguments because I think that these are particularly useful for developing intuition. In some cases I'll show the algebraic treatment. In 20 hours of lectures I want to go through a large amount of basic trade theory, and illustrate its importance using several policy applications. I will not attempt to discuss the empirical trade literature, or the "new trade theory". This course should prepare students to begin reading the frontier work in trade. It is not, however, intended to be a course about the frontier. Readings: Lecture notes and problem sets (and later, the solution keys) are available on webpage http://are.berkeley.edu/courses/ARE201. These notes should make it unnecessary for students to worry about copying diagrams or algebra during lectures, enabling them to concentrate on the ideas rather than the technical details. The lecture notes are a supplement to rather than a replacement for the texts. Problem sets:
