About The Book

International economics has three main branches: international trade theory, international trade policy, and international monetary economics, which is also called international finance. The purpose of this book is to help students learn these international trade theories, policies and finance besides international economics tools and financial institutions, and to show how they can apply these tools and theories of international economics in international trade. Accordingly, this book is organised into five parts: Introduction, International Trade Theory (Microeconomic Aspects), International Trade Policy (Microeconomic Aspects), International Monetary Economics (Macroeconomic Aspects), and Multilateral Financial Institutions and Regional Development Institutions. The author has taken effort to make the book more student-friendly. Towards that end, the author has used various learning tools that recurred throughout the book like learning objectives, introduction, key terms, summary, questions for review, appendix, and references. This book contains numerous case studies, which help students and academicians to get insight into the application of the theory. Besides, case studies, additional materials are given in boxes, which offer a glimpse into the history of economic thought. Others clarify technical issues. Still others discuss data and supplementary topics on international trade. All figures are drawn on numerical scales to allow the reading of answers in actual numbers rather than simply as distances. Figures are carefully explained in the text and then summarised briefly in the captions. This book presents a judicious blend of all the standard topics of traditional theory of international economics as well as the many exciting recent developments in the field.
