Book Description

This book, first published in 1983, and written by a respected leading authority, presents the essentials of international economics in a simple and straightforward way. The book contains the minimum of algebra and avoids detailed proofs. It incorporates the most recent contemporary theoretical advances and discusses contemporary issues in commercial policy. Moreover, it puts less emphasis than other textbooks on trade theory and more on balance of payments theory and on questions of international finance and international monetarism.
