    One thought on “International Economics: Theory and Policy”

    1. Libro interesante, con bastante información teórica, histórica y ejemplos que facilitan el entendimiento de conceptos económicos para los que no tenemos una educación fuerte en materias económicas y matemáticas. Considerando que son más de 700 páginas, no se hizo tan largo de leer.Lamentablemente, debo reconocer que a veces me sentí superado por la parte más teórica del texto, y en particular cuando se empezaba a hablar de ecuaciones y gráficos. De seguro como texto de algún curso, [...]

    2. It's a very good text for undergraduate international macro courses but a little too light on the math for my tastes. Still, I recommend to anyone who's interested in learning more about international macro and "big" economic questions like why we went off the gold standard (and why we were on it to begin with).

    3. I got this book for a course I was taking at George Washington University. I didn't much care for the teacher's teaching methods nor the book. The book seems well written, but not easy to understand. I only read small parts of it for the 1 semester class. Very dry reading.

    4. This was my school book for two classes: International trade and Trade policy. I liked it because of its complexity and graphs and examples.

    5. Excellent, comprehensive introduction to international trade, international finance, and open-economy macro.

    6. This was a very informative read and I highly recommend it for anyone seeking deeper knowledge of international economics. It covered both macro and microeconomics topics, formulas, and models in an approachable way. This book really shines in helping the reader to understand international economic laws and policies and the role of the WTO, GATT, TRIPS, and so on. After following up some of the things I learned with outside research I found a lot of my long held opinions on economic policies wer [...]

    7. Note to self: Main text for International Finance course under Prof. Shinichi Watanabe (Minnesota 1983), Spring Term 2004; and International Trade and Commercial Policy course under Prof. Yuqing Xing (Illinois/Urbana-Champaign 1995), Spring Term 2005. International Development Program, International University of Japan.When Paul Krugman talks, I'm all ears!

    8. This book was a nightmare. The authors used up whole pages filled with useless information to make a point that could've been made in a much simpler and shorter way, and this was the case in every single chapter. I'm thinking that they figured it'd make it all the clearer that way, but in my case it only made me more confused.If you need it for a class I'd suggest you search for an alternative.

    9. Brain wash for freetraders good facts about how asian countries really became rich. Neoclassics for poverty!

    10. Huh. I hadn't realized that my Int'l Econ text was by a fellow who would later win the Nobel Prize. Cool. I guess I shouldn't dump it, then?

    11. Gran libro introductorio a los temas de la economía internacional, fácil de seguir y aprender de forma individual

    12. A great text on trade - quite popularly used as a text for introductory trade and international economics classes in colleges.
