    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course gives a good overview of the macroeconomic mechanics involved in the international political economy. From exchange rates, free trade, tariffs, developmental economics, and even international organizations, Professor Baer delivers a great overview of international economics while still getting into the nitty gritty details.

    Course highlights:

    This course better helped me understand difficult concepts such as currency trades and how it effects inflation, exports, imports as well as the economy as a whole.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you have a good basis of macroeconomic knowledge, preferably having taken intermediate macroeconomics. Any courses on finance or trade will be helpful as well. Otherwise, actually do the assigned readings, less because they're relevant to the exams and more because they'll augment the lectures and help you better understand the concepts relevant to international economics.
