Understanding Global Trade

Front Cover
Harvard University Press, Aug 29, 2011 - Business & Economics - 232 pages
Helpman explains what shapes international production and distribution of goods and the resulting trade flows, and provides a clear, original account of the trade-theory revolutions of the 1980s and the post-recession. Though it contains no equations, Understanding Global Trade is mathematical in its elegance, precision, and power of expression.
