I am on sabbatical in AY2020/21, but normally teach microeconomic theory and international trade at the undergraduate and graduate level.  Students interested can find more information on my current courses below.

ECON-671- International Economics: Trade

This is a graduate introduction to the economics of international trade.We will cover a broad array of relevant topics, emphasizing the predictions of theoretical models and how well those models fit the “real world” data empirically. We will begin with a review of the leading theories of international trade, including what those theories predict about the direction of trade flows and the welfare consequences of trade. We will then delve into the causes and consequences of various forms of trade protection, with a particular focus this semester on trade wars. The final third of the semester will overview a number of important topics in international trade, including the function of regional and multilateral trade organizations in the global economic system.
