About the Book

An Introduction to International Economics: New Perspectives on the World Economy is designed for courses in international economics primarily targeting non-economic majors and programs in business, international relations, public policy and development studies. It makes international economics accessible to a wide range of student and professional audiences.

The book assumes a minimal background in microeconomics and mathematics and goes beyond the usual trade-finance dichotomy to give equal treatment to four “windows” on the world economy: international trade, international production, international finance, and international development. It takes a practitioner point of view rather than a standard academic view, introducing the student to the material they need to become effective analysts in international economic policy.

A Chinese edition is under preparation and will be available in December 2014.
