Introductory Notes to the Theory of International Trade

Katranidis, Stelios

Liargovas. Panagiotis
Vasiliou, Dimitrios

The handbook aims to provide the necessary tools for a thorough understanding of: the basic principles of the theory of international trade, trade policies adopted by governments,economic integration, trade liberalization, globalization and, moreover, to familiarize the student with diagrammatic techniques and fundamental mathematical methods in ITT.A prerequisite for the thorough understanding of the reading material is a basic knowledge of microeconomic principles. While some of the material in this handbook presents sections that will allow students to better understand the main reading material there is surely not a one-to-one relation of the chapters presented in this handbook and the issues examined in the main reading material.
This text presents some of the basic theorems that have shaped Classical and Neo-Classical Trade Theory. Amongst other topics, we discuss gains from trade, distribution of gains, government intervention policies and economic integration. An aid to the main reading material for an “easy”, example-based, diagram-based examination of some of the main issues the novice student of international economics will encounter.

Students in ITT should thoroughly examine the respective sections of this handbook as the course progresses and various topics are covered. In the beginning of the course, as is usually done in introductory ITT courses, the theory of Ricardo and the Heckscher –Ohlin model are presented. Students should allow ample time to go through chapters 1 and 2 and the respective solved exercises. Following the study of the material and the solved exercises, they should be able to go through the respective exercises (that are not solved), presented in Chapter 10. Accordingly, as the course progresses, students should go through the remainder chapters of the handbook. The necessary study time ranges for the respective student who should, however, make sure that he/she thoroughly understands the material and the solved exercises. (150 Σελίδες)
