About this book


In the curricula of highly ranked MBA programs, two areas of discussion are conspicuously absent: International Trade, and Global Macroeconomic Policy.  In this post-financial crisis environment, as the US and other advanced economies continue to experience sluggish growth, persistently high unemployment, and political agitation for increasingly protectionist policies, discussions pertaining to trade, currencies, and international capital flows are often fraught with emotion, tension, and hysteria.  This book cuts through the emotions and superficial “solutions” and provides the reader with a thorough understanding of the hard-hitting theoretical models that drive the global flow of goods, services, and capital in the real world.  A key feature of this volume is the presentation of the theoretical models, and the discussion of their implications in the context of real-world applications.  This text is uniquely designed for current and future business leaders who are, or will be, engaged in the global economy.  Armed with an understanding of the theoretical underpinnings driving goods, capital and ideas across national boundaries, readers will learn to anticipate the effects of trade and macroeconomic policy changes, and will have the tools to make sound, informed decisions for themselves and their global organizations. 


This volume provides a unique synthesis of academic and practical perspectives, thanks to the background of its authors.
