International Economics & Trade

In today’s global economy, trade between countries is more important than ever before. Trade economists study the patterns and effects of economic activity between different countries, such as the determinants of financial flows and exchange rates, the impact of tariff and non-tariff barriers on economic structures, and incentives for protectionist behavior.
