Anotace:

Throughout the course, an interesting contrast between the inspiring trade theory and the alternative instances of economic policy will be done.

Several topics dealing with the economic policy will be discussed: External Balance, Exchange Rate Policy, Free Markets vs Strategic Trade Policy.

A modern approach will tackle the Balance of Payment analysis, emphasising the good and service transactions vs the capital flows performing movements in the capital account.

The methodology introduces to students the important section of International political economy (IPE) relating to international trade. The course will focus on core issues of international trade and domestic policies, such as diverse development strategies, the role of multinational corporations, and the policies of protectionism or free trade. A set of case studies relating to the present state of affairs of international trade will be analyzed.
