Suitable Textbooks*

 
The Excel sheets that we have developed and made available on this site illustrate many of the major models and results from international trade, and can be used at a variety of levels. The more detailed general equilibrium models are probably best suited to an upper division field course in international trade, although they can also be used at the introduction to trade level to give students a flavor of the results (with the more difficult geometric treatments hidden). The partial equilibrium models are suitable for a course at any level. On this page we list some of the common texts at the introductory/advanced levels, and indicate the chapters where the models would be useful.
