2 - 4 weeks availability


This fully comprehensive and rigorous text deals primarily with the determinants of the pattern of trade, gains from trade and trade policy. Its expansive coverage spans the old traditional theories, and introduces the new, uniquely presenting each theory both geometrically and mathematically. It successfully brings together theoretical and empirical studies in a manner which emphasises the tenets of economic methodology, with the spirit that abstract economic theories are worthless if they cannot be applied to analyse real world problems.
