Overview

Combining classic international economics with straight-from-the-headlines immediacy, this essentials version of Feenstra and Taylor’s text (suitable for one-term courses) seamlessly integrates the subject’s established core content with topic areas and ideas that have emerged from recent empirical studies.

A MODERN APPROACH FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
International economics texts traditionally place greater emphasis on theory and a strong focus on the advanced countries.  Feenstra/Taylor links theory to empirical evidence throughout the book, and incorporates coverage of emerging markets and developing economies (India, China, SE Asia) to reflect the evolving realities of the global economy.
