Overview

Political Economy and International Economics is the fifth volume of collected essays by the noted economist Jagdish Bhagwati. Following Essays in
International Economic Theory (edited by Robert Feenstra) and Essays in Development
Economics (edited by Gene Grossman), it reflects Bhagwati's wide range of interests and his rare ability to combine economic theory and political analysis.Many of
Bhagwati's writings provide fresh insights into old problems, from the theory of commercial policy, to foreign investment and labor migration; others open up new areas such as services to analysis. Recent work on the theory of political economy,
including DUP (directly unproductive profit-seeking) activities and quid pro quo direct investment, breaks new ground. Also included are a number of previously inaccessible lectures covering such important issues as poverty and public policy.
Cutting across several fields of economics, including public finance and development, these provide masterly syntheses and overviews of broader issues.Jagdish Bhagwati is Arthur Lehman Professor of Economics and Professor of
Economics at Columbia University. He is the founding editor of the new journal
Economics and Politics. Douglas A. Irwin is an economist with the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
