ECON 450: INTERNATIONAL TRADE MARK MOORE FALL 2011 Office: KAP 324C Office Hours: M 2 - 4 p.m. Email: mpmoore@usc.edu This course examines trade theory and trade policy. Topics include the sources of trade, the gains from trade, trade policy, and international trade agreements, among others. We will rely heavily (although not exclusively) on the textbook for readings for much of the semester. But we will also take up several special topics and consider additional readings beyond the textbook. The reliance on the textbook is appropriate given the volume of basic theory we must cover in the course. Moreover, international trade is one of the oldest fields in economics, and the basic models we discuss have a long history. At the same time, there have been new developments in trade theory over the past couple of decades, and international economics is inherently topical, since much of the interest in and justification for the field lies in the analysis of the policies pursued by sovereign countries. There will be ample scope for discussion of current events as the course progresses. Requirements
