Course Syllabus

Abstract

The course is divided into two major parts, Trade and Development. In the Trade part of the course,we will first review recent developments in the classical theories of trade based on comparative advantage of countries. Then, we will go over theories of trade with monopolistic competition and increasing returns to scale. Finally, we will discuss other recent research in international trade, such as theories of offshoring and multinational corporations,the effects of international ethnic networks on trade,the effects of trade on hostility between countries, and some others. The Development part of the course focuses on the study of effects of institutions and culture on economic development. There will be two segments in this section: the empirical and theoretical sections. Different approaches to understanding and modeling culture will be discussed. Prerequisites: One important prerequisite is a thorough knowledge of calculus. Aknowledge of trade theories at undergraduate level is also a plus, but is not essential.The working language in the course is English.
