UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA Econ 181 Course Outline Department of Economics Fall 2010 Fall 2010 2/10 Course Description: This is a course in international trade theory and policy with an emphasis on real world applications. The last 25 years have witnessed a large increase in the volume of international trade and investment, significant treaties reducing barriers to trade and capital movements, and the development of regional trading blocs. More recently, we have witnessed a rise in sentiment against international trade and globalization. We will examine these events and policies in a solid analytical context. To do so, we will develop models to analyze international trade and to shed light on the underlying economic, social, and political factors that affect trade patterns. The goal is to enable you to understand current political debates on trade and protection in a structured manner and to express your analysis in a coherent way.
