This innovative book, unlike any other text on international trade, focuses on the dynamic long-run relationship between trade and economic growth rather than the static short-run relationship between trade and economic efficiency. This book goes beyond the traditional theories and delves into empirical results in a global perspective. Most analytical discussions in the book are built around diagrams in order to make the text accessible to students. A valuable teaching tool for courses in international economics, economic growth and economic development at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
