This shortform textbook provides a comprehensive overview of international economics and coverage of recent trends in the global economy to supplement students' knowledge of this fast-moving subject area.
Divided into two parts, the book begins by introducing the fundamental aspects of international economics (the international economic system, global networks and flows, the theory of international trade, trade policy, trade agreements, foreign exchange market, international factor movements, and developing countries) before moving on to focus on specialist topics such as the Covid-19 pandemic, the emerging economies of BRICS, and Brexit. Each chapter includes an essential summary, key terms, study questions, and references.
The book is accompanied by a suite of digital resources, including a test bank of questions, PowerPoints slides, answers to chapter questions, and an instructor's manual.
As part of the Absolute Essentials of Business and Economics series, the book provides a straightforward way for students to learn about international economics, and will be invaluable reading for any student studying the global economy as part of a business, economics or international studies degree programme.
