Published by Pearson

Published Date: Dec 14, 2011


A principles-level introduction to international economics—accessible to all majors.

International Economics uses a rich array of case studies to illuminate economic institutions and policies as well as recent developments in the global economy—without students having to rely on a prerequisite knowledge of higher-level math. Further, the text’s flexible approach—with self-contained chapters and comprehensive coverage—allows instructors to adapt the text easily to a wide range of syllabi.

The fifth edition preserves the organization and coverage of the fourth edition and adds a number of updates and enhancements. All tables and graphs have been updated and every chapter reflects a new discussion, case or developing example.
